Jack Youngerman’s work combines hard-edged geometry with organic forms and fluid contours. Influenced by Henri Matisse while living in Paris in the 1940s and ’50s, Youngerman creates vibrant painted compositions, occasionally within shaped canvases. His works conjure various associations: Matisse’s paper cutouts, Rorschach patterns, and kaleidoscopic mandalas. After Youngerman returned to New York in the mid-1950s, his work was grouped with and exhibited alongside his contemporaries Ellsworth Kelly and Frank Stella.
