DESCRIPTION

From buttery brushstrokes to massive, sculptural buildups of surfaces, many contemporary artists—like the impressionists and fauves before them—let the paint tell the story. Painters have long been inspired by the rich, visceral qualities of paint—its texture, its color, its sumptuousness. Drawn from the Museum’s own holdings, Juicy Paint explores the many ways in which artists have explored and exploited the sheer physicality and dimensional effects of paint since the 1950s. Highlights include works by Elmer Bischoff, Joan Brown, Nathan Oliveira, Manuel Neri, Karl Kasten, Jeffrey Keith, Sam Tchakalian, and Phe Ruiz.
