Styles & Periods
Post-Painterly Abstraction

In the 1960s the influential curator Clement Greenberg mounted a show titled “Post-Painterly Abstraction” at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. This was the first formalization of the term, which came to mean painting that veered away from the dense compositions and gestural brushstrokes of the Abstract Expressionists, and towards compositions of clarity and openness. Post-Painterly Abstraction is the most inclusive term for this new direction of painting that came to include Color-Field painting, Hard-Edge painting, and others. Generally the painters of these movements distilled the active, expressive strokes of Abstract Expressionism into broad planes of color that were just as emotionally charged. This reinvention of abstract painting breathed new life into the modern painting tradition by eliminating fantasy, object and figuration from compositions. Sam Francis, Helen Frankenthaler, Ellsworth Kelly, Mark Rothko, Frank Stella and Jules Olitski, while having disparate styles, are all considered part of Post-Painterly Abstraction.

I don't know why more people don't know about this glue. I made a layered cardboard box over 15 years ago and it is just like the day I made it. No warping, loose edges,its perfect. And the great thing about it, if you haven't used it in a long time and it seems dried out, put some water in the jar, close the lid and come back next day and it's usable. It's one glue that more is not better. Thin it with a little water and cover the surface using an old credit card or brush. I love it for paper or chipboard or cardboard projects.

As a cartoonist, I prefer the Strathmore 300 series smooth surface bristol. It works well in achieving a smooth, even ink line whether using pen or brush. And most importantly, it is more economical than either the 400 series, or 500 series bristol.

I use Stickles Glitter Glue, in my art journaling and in a recent Mandala picture. I would like them better if they came in a bigger bottle. I do like the sparkling effect they impart.
