A selection of works at Leslie Feely Fine Art showcases Color Field pioneers including Helen Frankenthaler, Kenneth Noland, Jules Olitski, Dan Christensen and Larry Poons. With their investigations of pure colors and original painting techniques, these artists emphasized the planar surface of the canvas. Their innovations coincided with technological advancements, as newly available acrylic paints expanded possibilities for color, transparency and texture. Frankenthaler experimented with the ability of unprimed canvas to absorb paint, while Olitski innovated a novel spray gun method and Poons layered viscous cascades of poured paint. Together these artists orchestrated a critical juncture in the evolution of modern art.
