abstract-expressionsim

Little Big Painting, 1965
Roy LIchtenstein 

This silkscreen is a depiction of 1 solid brushstroke and  a commentary on the brushstroke in abstract expressionism. It made a mockery of the idea that a brustroke was a vehicle to directly communicate feelings. Also, even though the abstract expressionists despised commercialization, they were not immune to it.

“I created these one day after a triggering counseling session. I got home and I didn’t know what to do. I couldn’t call anyone and vent, nor did I want to. I was in one of those spaces where I mostly just wanted to watch the world burn. So in a moment of clarity I reached for the art supplies and this is what came out of it. Creating something probably saved my life that day.”
