Hans Hofmann was one of the most important figures of the Abstract Expressionists and celebrated for his exuberant, color-filled canvases. He believed fervently that a modern artist must remain faithful to the flatness of the canvas support.
Nature was the origin of art, Hofmann believed, and no matter how abstract his pictures seemed to become, he always sought to maintain in them a link to the world of objects.
Although the suggestion of movement was critically important to Hoffmann his foremost medium of expression was color: 'The whole world, as we experience it visually,' he said, 'comes to us through the mystic realm of color.'
I create small studies like The Lark in preparation for a finished piece or just as visual notes. I often use my small studies to understand the problems involved in rendering subjects and to plan the elements to be used in finished works, such as light, color, form, perspective and composition.
These small studies are exclusively available through my shop and blog. All studies are signed on the reverse.
