ALEX KATZ "BLUE FLAGS / IRISES" , 2014
Alex Katz's works are instantly recognizable and adored internationally.
Born in 1927 Katz has been dedicated to art-making since the 1950's - however it wasn't until the following decade when he established his signature 'flat' figurative style...which continues to influence contemporary painters.
Katz is a true successor to the New York based Pop artists, notably Roy Lichtenstein.
He continues to influence figurative painters of the late 20th century. We can see his influence on a host of artists including Eric Fischl, David Salle, Julian Opie and Elizabeth Peyton amongst others. One could argue that Katz kept the tradition of figurative painting alive when it had gone terribly out of style.
An active and devoted printmaker, Katz typically creates portraits and landscapes, subjects that he is personally connected to such as Soho cityscapes, the flora of rural Maine and the people in his life.
This particular work, a Japanese woodblock print, is composed of 17 different colors. It is an exceptional example of the medium. While the image appears simple, it is in fact the result of a meticulous and complicated process.
Like the best of Alex Katz's work "Blue Flags (Irises)" is bold, timeless and uplifting.
