KENNETH NOLAND "CHEVRON MONOTYPE", 1983
Kenneth Noland (1924 – 2010) is well known for his contributions to the American Color-Field painting movement.
One of our favorite characteristics of Kenneth Noland’s oeuvre is his aesthetic restlessness. Throughout his career he resists series with rigid definitions, always interested in revisiting an element or motif from a previous body of work.
Although Noland was never constrained by a single style or movement, his work is characterized by a commitment to geometric abstraction and a liberal use of rich attention-seeking colors. His most iconic works feature re-occurring forms, most notably concentric circles, chevrons, patterned stripes, grids and diamonds.
Like the best abstract artists of his generation, Noland similarly experimented with printmaking - however his activity was concentrated in the late 1970's and early 1980's.
This unique monotype is an excellent example of Noland's printmaking and signature forms. The chevron was a frequently employed motif of his, realized repeatedly through several mediums from paintings to prints.
Here, Noland challenges the strict geometric lines of his chevron form, overwhelming the structure with color that appears to be either dripping or scraped. Grape, magenta, teal, yellow and mauve shift into and out of each other, yet avoiding the clear cut stacked triangular outline of his signature chevron arrangement.
Noland's chevrons are some of the most iconic and desirable works in the 20th century art canon. This piece is fine example of one of Noland's creations, but also a demonstration of his ingenuity and style as a printmaker.
