Artist We Adore : Helen Frankenthaler

Images + Post By: | March 18, 20106 Comments

Helen Frankenthaler’s work is often overlooked because of the male-dominated reputation of the movement she is first associated with- Abstract Expressionistism. We are always inspired by her color palette, and wanted to share our love because painters like De Kooning and Pollack take the spotlight in books but Frankenthaler’s work was an equal contribution. Her (very) large scale oil paintings take on the texture and look of more delicate watercolor paintings due to the technique she introduced called “soak stain”. Using paint heavily diluted by turpentine she painted on a unprepared canvas so that it absorbed the mixture like water. Often Rothko is credited with this technique as his work is the face of the Color Field school which it spurned. However, Frankenthaler’s succulent, soft and vibrant canvas are ¬†special in a way that no one else¬†could ever match. That girl can certainly paint. See some of her work after the jump.

    I just got a quick message for the webmaster of this website. I was looking into your SEO data, just out of curiousity, and I found that you are lacking SEO meta tags. If you know what these are, then you really need to take a look at them, and fix them. If you have no clue, don’t worry, just use a good WP plugin. Never use one of those free ones that have several security breaches, make sure you buy one. I use this: but feel free to use another if you know another great paid one that you know works. Anyways, I hope you make this huge change and your search engine rankings boost your traffic. Good luck, if you have any questions, feel free to email me.
