New York-based artist Charline von Heyl has said that her reason for painting is because she "desires to invent an image that has not yet been seen." Her dynamic abstract canvases combine vivid color, confusion of fore and background, and gestures of opposing speeds, suggesting Wassily Kandinsky or Arshile Gorky while not unified in any one style. In von Heyl's works on paper, printmaking techniques such as lithography, silkscreen, and woodcut are subjected to processes of chance and experimentation and awesome colors like goldenrod yellow, electric blue, and fiery orange.
