John McLaughlin paintings: Total Abstraction

John McLaughlin

Dimanche, 13 Novembre, 2016 - Dimanche, 16 Avril, 2017

Long acknowledged in Southern California as one of the most important artists of the postwar period, John McLaughlin (1898-1976) created a focused body of geometric paintings that are entirely devoid of any connection to everyday experience, inspired by the Japanese notion of the void. Using a technique of layering rectangular bars on adjacent planes of muted color, McLaughlin creates works that provoke introspection and, consequently, a greater understanding of one’s relationship to nature. The exhibition consists of 52 paintings and a selection of collages and drawings that will establish McLaughlin as one of the foremost innovators of total abstraction.
