Abstract Expressionism: Grow Your Art Book Collection

David Krut Projects is currently showing ‘Markers’ by Paul Senyol, an abstract painter who reflects the details of everyday life pared down to an empathy with colour, line and form. His work is a carefully crafted response to his wonderings through various spaces. This exhibition is definitely worth a visit; it will be up until 13th July at David Krut Projects, 142A Jan Smuts Avenue.

For those interested in further exploring Abstract Art and Expressionism as art genres, David Krut Bookstore has a number of books that will add value (and bragging rights!) to any art book collection.

Expressionism book by Taschen

Sharp angles, strange forms, lurid colors, and distorted perspectives are classic hallmarks of Expressionism, the twentieth century movement that prioritized emotion over objective reality. Though particularly present in Germany and Austria, the movement’s approach flourished internationally and is today hailed as one of the most influential shifts in art history.

Pollock by Taschen

The rebel hero of Abstract Expressionism, Jackson Pollock (1912–1956) careened through his life like a firework across the American art landscape. Channeling ideas from sources as diverse as Picasso and Mexican surrealism, he rejected convention to develop his own way of seeing, interpreting, and expressing.
