Styles & Periods
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

Superior product for all art applications! I've been using it for years and it's the most versatile liquid polymer clay I've ever tried. I like TLS too (translucent liquid Sculpey) but Fimo Deco Gel is clearer. It cures to a hard clay state as clay should- it doesn't cure to a diamond hard state but it's not supposed to- it's clay! If you want a diamond hard product you need to use resin.

This is decent paint for the studio with long lasting color.
- Art by Marti in North Texas
Thank you for the quick delivery of this wonderful drawing tool. I like to have yellow and blue on hand for transferring line work from tracing paper onto a canvas. I paint solid backgrounds shades and either one or thee other color will show up on any background, dark or light.
