Steven Gagnon’s America

One thing modern American Pop Artists seem to do best is to find new ways of illuminating our cultural shortcomings.

Death, in particular, is a consistent theme that is contemplated when viewers consume the works of Damien Hirst. For the Love of God, one of the artist’s most famous works, is as controversial today as it was when the sculpture was first unveiled in 2007.

Action Painting: Subconscious Revelations Change Abstract Expressionism

In the post-war America of the 1940s and 1950s, a number of New York Abstract Expressionist Artists captured the imagination of the public with regard to the mechanisms of their craft − a style described as “Action Painting.” In 1952, it was art critic Harold Rosenberg who officially named this style within his article about the trend among various members of the New York School, most notably Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline.
