Frederick Hammersley, Never Let The Screen Door Slam (2010)

Frederick Hammersley (Jan 5, 1919-May 31, 2009) was an American abstract painter. His most well-known work deal with the limitless possibilities available in pure, strongly shaped form and the application of simple, flat colour. Powerful propositions of how this simple formula functions again and again sheds a revelatory light on what makes us pay attention to visual variation. One who's work repays closer scrutiny whether we work in an abstract or figurative idiom. As an introduction to this master of visual power here's a YouTube video where the man himself talks about his work, process and his life in general.
