In 1950, at the age of 62, Albers began what would become his signature series, the Homage to the Square. Over the next 26 years, until his death in 1976, he produced hundreds of variations on the basic compositional scheme of three or four squares set inside each other, with the squares slightly gravitating towards the bottom edge.

In this and other paintings in his Homage to the Square series, Albers investigates the interaction of colors with one another, adjusting hue, tone and intensity to explore optical effects. These effects Albers created, shimmering color contrasts and the illusion of receding and advancing planes, were meant not so much to deceive the eye as to challenge the viewer’s faculties of visual reception.

Lucio Fontana is known for his slashing of his paintings. Doing so allowed Fontana to let three–dimensional space intrude into an otherwise two–dimensional surface.

Fontana first introduced perforations within his works in 1949 and referred to these as 'spatial concepts.' He then began slashing his canvases in the early 1950s. While these works immediately conjure acts of violence and iconoclasm, Fontana claimed 'I have constructed, not destroyed.'

Portrait Of Picasso- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Portrait Of Picasso By Juan Gris

Portrait Of Picasso

SOLD

Likewise Picasso and Braque Juan Gris too was known as a Cubist and identified by at least one critic as "Picasso’s disciple." Gris’s style draws upon Analytic Cubism.

Here he fractured his sitter’s head, neck, and torso into various planes and simple, geometric shapes but organized them within a regulated, compositional structure of diagonals.

Although it hard to see on my painting Gris depicted Picasso as a painter with palette in hand. This portrait demonstrates Gris’s respect for Picasso as a leader of the artistic circles of Paris and as an innovator of Cubism. By painting it again I show my respect for both artists.

The woman on my painting is enjoying a painting by Andy Warhol of a banana. Warhol slapped his now famous banana on the cover of the debut album by the Velvet Underground for which he served as the manager and patron saint. The album is now widely recognized as one of the greatest and most influential albums in the history of popular music.

2018

SOLD

August Macke was one of the founders of the influential expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider). Although Macke was a leading expressionist, he was essentially a colorist. The colors bounce all over the painting, but the people are mere shapes. Macke is close to pure abstraction, but never fully engaged with it. Perhaps that is what most attractive to my figure.

Earlier this year I got an email from Rüdiger Hoffmann. He and his wife Maria were asked by HH Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohammed, a nephew of the ruler of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), to open an art centre in Ras Al-Khaimah, the capital of the emirate Ras Al-Khaimah. I don't have definite date just yet, but the gallery should open its doors by the end of this year.

I'm honored to be one of the selected artists for the inaugural exhibition. On view will be my painting Love and this portrait I made of Maria enjoying a portrait of Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol. Both paintings are already in the UAE. I cannot wait for the gallery to open!

kind regards, Gerard

Red and Blue- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Painting By Ellsworth Kelly

Red and Blue
painting of woman enjoying painting by Ellsworth Kelly

acrylic on masonite
8" x 8" or 20 x 20 cm
2018

SOLD

Ellsworth Kelly was an American painter, sculptor, and printmaker associated with Hard-edge painting, Color Field painting and Minimalism. His works demonstrate unassuming techniques emphasizing line, color and form.

Kelly intended for viewers to experience his artwork with instinctive, physical responses to the work's structure, color, and surrounding space rather than with contextual or interpretive analysis. He encourages a kind of silent encounter, or bodily participation by the viewer with the artwork, chiefly by presenting bold and contrasting colors free of gestural brushstrokes.
