Color-Field painting first rose to prominence in the 1950s following on from the 1940s Action Painters such as Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. It is the more subtle member of the Abstract Expressionism artistic family but unlike Action Painting, Color-Field gives you an insight into the mind of the artist while inspiring you to apply your own unique visual interpretation. Fiore Ai shares her own personal journey of Color-Field beginning with collagraphs and movable riders, then developing her skills to more complex and vibrant designs with her Acra Variation collection and ending with the gargantuan acrylic Planetary Series. In Color-Field Paintings, Fiore Ai presents you with an interesting historical background of Abstract Expressionism, along with the artists that primarily influenced her. Fiore invites you to join her on an artistic journey that will both enthrall and captivate.
As a huge fan of Action Painter Jackson Pollack and his remarkable designs, I was intrigued to view Fiore's artwork. I was so impressed by her unique and imaginative grasp of Color-Field. Her work allows you to free yourself from the fixed association of images you find in the majority of art collections and allow your own visual awareness to take precedence. Her use of graduating shades from dark to light and visa versa exhibits her comprehension of visual excellence. The Acra Variation collection is a perfect example of the dynamic use of tone and texture. As Color-Field Paintings by Fiore Ai progresses, we see her work become more detailed and sophisticated with the intriguing Light, Shadows, Void. The intense shades of magentas, reds, greens, golds, and variable panel widths were visual joy. The hypnotic Cosmic Ray collection with geometric shapes and flowing imagery was exceptional. I was totally mesmerized throughout. Her paintings are outstanding.
