Week 3 Abstract Expressionism

Artist name: Helen Frankenthaler


I did some research for Helen and found that this painting is inspired by inspired by a trip to Nova Scotia. It is large and has the effect of a watercolor, though it is painted in oils. In my option, I think this painting is full of different bright color, which make me feel comfortable and relaxed. The name of his painting is mountains and sea. So I think she wants to express her feeling of mountains and sea in her unique way. I love this painting because of it’s color. The blue means calm and peaceful, the green means lively, the red means bright and sunshine. So when her combine these different colors, it will mixture a different feeling. That’s why I love this painting.
