Craig Kauffman
American, 1932–2010
Follow

Best known for his lozenge-shaped plastic wall reliefs, or “bubbles,” Craig Kauffman was a major figure in the Southern Californian art world of the 1950s and ’60s and part of the original stable of artists associated with the renowned Ferus Gallery. Kauffman painted atop (and sometimes behind) translucent, vacuum-formed plastics, and was the first contemporary artist to use this commercial technology. Influenced by Minimalism, as well as a wide range of European and Asian art movements, Kauffman worked in a clean-lined aesthetic that was by turns gestural and evocatively sensual. His approach—aligned with the practices of his Californian contemporaries Larry Bell and DeWain Valentine, among others—was described by art historians as the “L.A. finish fetish.”
