ZIPS

I love Barnett Newman and how he continued a specific style of painting. Wow to think that I was one when he painted the Onement I (1948). The painting’s title is an archaic derivation of the word “atonement,” meaning, “the state of being made into one.”

Onement, I – Barnett Newman

onement-i-1948

Newman used a vertical band to define the spatial structure of his work. This band, later dubbed a “zip,” became Newman’s signature mark.

Newman’s paintings were wonderful fields of color and were a break with the gestural abstraction of his peers. He Created ZIP- an approach that avoided painting’s conventional oppositions of figure and ground. He created an area or line of color he called a symbol, the “zip,” which might reach out and pull the viewer into the image.

Barnett Newman was an American artist. He is seen as one of the major figures in abstract expressionism and one of the foremost of the color field painters

I never knew before that he looked like a detective. I love his mustache.

I seem to stray all over the place. Like a lost dog sniffing my away along.

Nice article about Barnett Newman. The Art Story

“I hope that my painting has the impact of giving someone, as it did me, the feeling of his own totality, of his own separateness, of his own individuality.”

Synopsis

Newman shared the Abstract Expressionists‘ interests in myth and the primitive unconscious, but the huge fields of color and trademark “zips” in his pictures set him apart from the gestural abstraction of many of his peers. The response to his mature work, even from friends, was muted when he first exhibited it. It was not until later in his career that he began to receive acclaim, and he would subsequently become a touchstone for both Minimalists and a second generation of Color Field painters. Commenting on one of Newman’s exhibitions in 1959, criticThomas B. Hess wrote, “he changed in about a year’s time from an outcast or a crank into the father figure of two generations.”

Painting with Vantablack.  Amazing.

The material is so dark it makes crinkled aluminum foil appear flat.
