Curtis Ripley "Bright Morning" Abstract Painting

About

Taking cues from the anti-figurative aesthetic of American Abstract Expressionists, Ripley’s process is one of spontaneity and gesture. Color is applied in broad strokes atop a black gesso surface. The paintings show the marks of their creation - splatters and drips are allowed to live on the surface, serving as reminders of the artist’s process. Ripley uses brushes and rags to wipe out and repaint the surface, obscuring previous layers while gradually building up others to create even deeper space and movement. In “Bright Morning,” Ripley evokes a sense of three-dimensionality through his characteristic technique of building up and subsequently blurring layers of oil paint. The hazy background is punctuated by bright markings of colors, which form a merry-go-round of geometric forms. In the center of the composition a dance of brushstrokes takes shape, creating a lyrical juxtaposition between white and yellow curvilinear swipes and the red, blue and black shapes that encircle them. Initialed by the artist in the lower right corner and signed and dated by the artist on back.
