The Evolution of Abstract Expressionism
Emerging in New York in the 1940s and 1950s, abstract expressionism represented a radical break from traditional modes of painting. Artists like Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Mark Rothko pioneered expressive techniques focused on the process of applying paint rather than depicting recognizable subjects. Dynamic brushstrokes, gestural paint handling, and bursts of pure color became hallmarks of the movement that prized originality and authentic emotional resonance. Abstract expressionism gained global prominence, securing New York's status as the postwar art capital.
The Collection at Cohle Gallery
At Cohle Gallery, our collection of abstract expressionist paintings celebrates both trailblazing founders of the style and contemporary interpreters. We take care to source pieces by artists like Zdenek Konvalina who add their own perspectives to this impactful tradition. Konvalina's abstract canvases reveal his background in ballet through lyrical gestures and vivid hues. Other collection highlights include the energetic compositions of Franck Noto, merging graffiti and abstraction, as well as Yusuff Aina Abogunde's culturally resonant interpretations.
