Robert Ryman - Monochrome Painting

Robert Ryman (May 30, 1930 – February 8, 2019) was an American painter identified with the movements of monochrome painting, minimalism, and conceptual art. He was best known for abstract, white-on-white paintings.He lived and worked in New York City. Ryman was often classified as a minimalist; but, he preferred to be known as a «realist», because, he was not interested in creating illusions, but, only in presenting the materials he used in compositions at their face value. As he wrote in a statement for a 2010 exhibition at Pace Wildenstein, «I am not a picture painter. I work with real light and space, and since real light is an important aspect of the paintings, it always presents some problems.»The majority of his works feature abstract expressionist-influenced brushwork in white or off-white paint on square canvas or metal surfaces. A lifelong experimenter with media, Ryman painted and/or drew on canvas, linen, steel, aluminum, plexiglas, lumasite, vinyl, fiberglass, corrugated paper, burlap, newsprint, wallpaper, jute sacking, fiberplate, a composite material called gator board, feather board, handmade paper, and acrilivin.

Ronald Lockett - American visual artist

Ronald Lockett (1965–1998) was an American visual artist, combining painting with three dimensional objects. “Lockett’s primary artistic mentor” was the painter Thornton Dial, his cousin.
“Ronald Lockett was born and lived in the “Pipe Shop” neighborhood of Bessemer, Alabama. He graduated from high school but stayed at home and pursued no trade; he always knew he wanted to be an artist. Lockett learned to paint by watching television and observing Dial, who became his mentor.His early works are paintings on plywood, commonly using a palette of black, white and red. His style is naturalistic; however, his figures flicker between representation and abstraction. Often, he would choose animals as his subjects and like the Dial family artists, animals were sometimes used as surrogates for humans. He began to add elements of collage to his paintings, using found objects such as wire, cloth, nails, and fencing to add texture to his surfaces.”

Toshiko Takaezu - Ceramic Art

«Toshiko Takaezu was an American ceramicist known for her subtly colored glazed vessels. In one of her more famous series, Moonpots, the pots were not functional, with their tops purposefully sealed off. Her studies in Zen Buddhism and traditional Japanese pottery, led her to approach ceramics using intuition and simple gestures. “In my life I see no difference between making pots, cooking, and growing vegetables. They are all so related,” she said. “It is so gratifying and I get so much joy from it, and it gives me many answers in my life.” Born on June 17, 1922 in Pepeekeo, HI, she was the daughter of Japanese immigrants. Toshiko went on to receive her formal training from the University of Hawaii and the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, where she later taught.»
