Kenneth Noland (1924-2010)
Paper as Paint
July 2, 2021 - August 28, 2021
Dowling Walsh Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of hand made paper by Kenneth Noland (1924 - 2010) on view July 2, 2021 through August 28, 2021.
Kenneth Noland, known primarily for his large scale Color Field paintings, began making art with paper pulp in the late1970’s and continued to explore its possibilities well into the 1990’s. While he worked with a variety of materials and explored various media throughout his career, Noland found the use of paper pulp as a primary ingredient to be extremely satisfying in the directness of its application and physicality. In contrast to painting on canvas, the precision of papermaking lay in the process - the physical building of colored paper pulp to create a final image, a vehicle to generate depth of surface and ultimately a means explore color relationships in new and unexpected ways.
