Hard-Edge Painting

Hard-Edge painting arose in the 1960s in opposition to figurative and geometrical art and as a reaction to Abstract Expressionism. It is included in the new direction of painting of the 1960s that is generally called Post-Painterly Abstraction. Hard-Edge painting is characterized by its flat, broad fields of color. The forms in Hard-Edge painting are few, and are crisply defined by sharp contours. By reducing the amount of forms in a painting and eliminating the presence of a defined light source, Hard-Edge painters were able to negate depth, object and figure, thereby giving the painting – that is the stretcher and canvas itself – the distinction of being the object. This can be interpreted as total unity of the picture plane. Some of the most successful Hard-Edge painters include Agnes Martin, Ad Reinhardt, Ellsworth Kelly and Kenneth Noland.

Latest Product Reviews

This is my first foray into pastels, and this product has exceeded my expectations. It was delivered promptly and in good condition. I'm very happy with the colors included but it has left me wanting even more colors!

I've been using this product for years and so far have not had any problems. I love being able to buy it in bulk and not in those tiny canisters. (I have one canister with the lid-brush that I refill.) I've also never had a problem with the rubber cement in the big can drying out.

In addition to my first review about krylon fusion clear u v protection ; the directions say that if you use a krylon base that the clear will go on white and after 24 hours it will turn clear . Well 4 days later my plastic gun stock is still a pretty pearl white ; not the neat camo paint job I intended . I gave it a far sight more than 24 hours ; I guess it's back to the drawing board !!!!!
