New York, NY – Entertainment Insider – This book is a collection of prints and paintings by the artist Fiore Ai, who was inspired by the color-field and hard-edge geometric abstraction paintings of American art. The paintings depict translucent and prismatic light, with interplays of soft color gradations against hard edges and spatial divisions. They are at once subtle and bold, fluid and tense, moving across space that evokes a cosmic world.
Color-Field painting first rose to prominence in the 1950s following on from the 1940s Action Painters such as Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. It is the more subtle member of the Abstract Expressionism artistic family but unlike Action Painting, Color-Field gives you an insight into the mind of the artist while inspiring you to apply your own unique visual interpretation.
Fiore Ai shares her own personal journey of Color-Field beginning with collagraphs and movable riders, then developing her skills to more complex and vibrant designs with her Acra Variation collection and ending with the gargantuan acrylic Planetary Series. In Color-Field Paintings, Fiore Ai presents you with an interesting historical background of Abstract Expressionism, along with the artists that primarily influenced her. Fiore invites you to join her on an artistic journey that will both enthrall and captivate.
Currently, the book is under negotiation with McGraw Hill and is trying to solidify terms with the publisher. “It is a great honor to represent book like this. We are all excited and we are looking forward to finally ink a contract with the publisher” as per Mark Alvarez (Acquisitions & Development).
