Monumental Mixed-Media Abstract 2D Art Piece Attributed to Richard Slimon, 1960s

About

Fabulous mixed-media abstract 2D art piece attributed to renowned Kansas artist Richard Slimon. This piece is very large and although unsigned we are currently obtaining documentation. It is in wonderful condition; however, its slat type original framing may need replaced or restored, circa 1960s. We are totally in love with this monumentally sized mixed media abstract 2D art piece aka painting!!!! It was done in the 1960s and attributed to renowned Kansas artist, Richard Slimon. Its soothing colors remind me of the golds of the Kansas wheat fields and the blues of the wide-open Kansas skies. There are touches of black scattered throughout reminiscent of an approaching storm. And in Kansas most likely a tornado. On this large piece Slimon skillfully applied tissue paper and acrylic paint to create geometric shape that play off each other and combine to make a gorgeous single image. This spectacular piece of art hung on the same wall in the living room in a most handsome midcentury Modern home above a Thayer Coggin Milo Baughman sofa from its creation till just weeks ago. Although this piece is unsigned it is listed in homeowners documentation as having been commissioned for the home we removed it from. We also have a smaller coordinating signed piece. We are currently seeking documentation from the artist as he is still living but in his 1990s. Richard Slimon attended St. Louis School of Fine Art at Washington University where he received his BFA in painting. Soon after he received a graduate fellowship from the University of Wichita where he earned his MFA degree and served as teaching fellow. During this time, he served a short stint as Acting Director of the Wichita Art Museum. He has been the Artist-In-Residence at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. And is currently Professor Emeritus at Emporia State University, Emporia, Kansas where he taught drawing and painting for many years. Among his many awards is a purchase from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. This is an absolutely awesome example of mid-century abstract mixed-media art. You need to make it yours.
