Harvey Quaytman – Fool's Gold - Pirate. Paintings from the Eighties

Looking at the paintings of American abstract artist Harvey Quaytman (1937-2002) and his prolific œuvre spanning four decades, one is struck by the sheer physical presence of the works and the richness of shapes, colours and materials. His distinctive and personal approach towards abstraction resists any facile attempt to grasp or canonize. Curator Apsara DiQuinzio places Quaytman’s approach at the junction of “Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, Process art, and Constructivism — a place where considerations of line, distilled geometric forms, materiality, atmosphere, and texture all coalesce.”
