KENNETH NOLAND "MARRON" ETCHING, 1990
One of our favorite characteristics of Kenneth Noland’s oeuvre is his apparent restlessness. Throughout his career he avoids series with rigid definitions, always interested in revisiting or relocating an element from a previous body of work. The element can be a shape, color or finish. The result is large and dynamic body of work, full of color and energy.
Kenneth Noland (April 10, 1924 – Jan. 5, 2010) is well known for his contributions to the American Color-Field painting movement, but was also regarded as an abstract expressionist in the 1950s, and in the 1960s as a minimalist. Throughout his career he was a printmaker, experimenting with different techniques and aesthetics.
Although Noland was never constrained by a single style or movements, his work is characterized by a commitment to geometric abstraction and a liberal use of bold, saturated colors. His most iconic works feature re-occurring forms, most notably concentric circles, patterned stripes, grids and diamonds.
By the 1990’s Noland had a firmly established repertoire of imagery typically realized in an exuberant palette. He continued to build on pre-existing methods, like utilizing shaped canvas or panels and patterned compositions.
Noland’s fun and colorful etchings from 1990 are exemplary of the artist’s lifelong commitment to experimentation in Color-Field and geometric abstraction. When compared to Noland’s earlier work, they feel remarkably upbeat, casual, and playful in nature.
