Abstract geometric patterns Douglas Dean Ohlson

Douglas Dean Ohlson (November 18, 1936 – June 29, 2010) was an American abstract artist who specialized in geometric patterns.

Goossen at the Hudson River Museum titled «8 Young Artists» in 1964, and had a solo show that year at the Fischbach Gallery, the first of seven at that location. Goossen also included work by Ohlson in the 1968 exhibition «The Art of the Real: 1948-1968» at the Museum of Modern Art which focused on the development and history of geometric art in the United States.Sharply defined and repeated geometric shapes were characteristic of his earliest painting, that were described by Goossen as depicting «yellowish pink and green dawns, blue noons, and red-orange sunsets that swiftly slide from purple to black», hypothesizing that Ohlson's experience growing up and working long days on the family's farm gave him a unique passion for color Ohlson was recognized with a Guggenheim

Ed Moses - abstract painting

Ed Moses (born April 9, 1926) is an American artist based in the Los Angeles area and considered one of the most innovative and central figures of postwar West Coast art.
Moses exhibited at the legendary Ferus Gallery in 1957 along with fellow prominent artist figures including Wallace Berman, Billy Al Bengston, Robert Irwin, Craig Kauffman, John Altoon, Larry Bell and Ed Ruscha. Over the next five decades, Moses would soar to prominence, gaining attention not only throughout Los Angeles and the United States, but internationally as well. Moses was the first to do so of his generation since John McLaughlin, Richard Diebenkorn and Sam Francis. While these artists developed a mature style, Moses has managed to resist any stylized approach and remain more experimental, playing to his curiosities by moving past what he already knows

Action painting Gerard Ernest Schneider

Gerard Ernest Schneider (1896–1986) was a Swiss painter.
A major pioneer of Lyrical Abstraction, a gestural and personal form of abstraction, along with Hans Hartung and Pierre Soulages, Gérard Schneider was shown in Paris at the Galerie Louis Carré as early as 1950.
From 1955 to 1960, Schneider’s work was exhibited at the famous Kootz Gallery in New York where an exclusivity contract connected the artist and the major American dealer Samuel Kootz.
From gesture, “the shape is born, whether lyrical or dramatic, with its colour and technical means, without any reference to external nature” according to Schneider.
Eugène Ionesco even spoke of “the original, eruptive, richness” of his work.
From nervous gesture and volcanic composition, full of tension, of the 1950s followed “the light years” from Michel Ragon’s expression, which were marked by the balance of forms reflecting each other and the explosion of colour. “Painting should be looked in the same way as music is listened to” as Schneider enjoyed saying
