    Color Field Artist, Kenneth Noland
    The great Color Field (and in my opinion, one of the most underrated colorists of the 20th century) artist Kenneth Noland died a few weeks ago. I was always a fan of his work as well as the other seminal Color Field painters like Jules Olitsky, Helen Frankenthaler, Barnett Newman and Morris Louis. I always liked the sort of “impersonalness” of ...

    The Boys from Brazil

    The Boys from Brazil
    The Campana brothers have turned down-cycling into design art. Any informed design appraisal invariably touches on materials. During much of the 20th century, innovative designs were consistently linked to breakthroughs in material engineering or fabrication.
