Seymour (Sy) Boardman: "Personal Geometries", Part II
For over 60 years, Seymour Boardman had created an oeuvre unparalleled in Contemporary Art - from colorful and vivid large-scale Abstract Expressionist paintings to minimalist and uncluttered-styled paintings. Seymour (Sy) Boardman "Personal Geometries" Part II will feature a comprehensive body of work spanning the 1970s' to the 2000's. ollowing part I bringing together Abstract Expressionist pieces created by the artist between the 1940's and the 1960's, this second part focuses more on Boardman's evolution toward a more Minimalist style. In this work, pastel colors are progressively used over bright colors while uncluttered and square-shaped lines progressively prevail over mosaic-like paintings of the 1960's. More than ever during the second period of his artistic career, Boardman's work aims to define visual structure, often replying on sharply articulated geometric principles and shapes.
