Color field painting employing boldly pop art palettes in the series of stripe paintings the artist completed while living in SoHo during the 1960s & 1970s. Similar abstracted paintings were prominently featured in ArtNews, Artforum & Arts magazines.
Series: NY Times reporter Roberta Smith writes in the obituary published in 2007 that “Edward Avedisian helped establish the hotly colored, but emotionally cool, abstract painting that succeeded Abstract Expressionism in the early 1960s. This young luminary harnessed elements of minimalism, pop, and color field painting to create prominent works of epic proportions that energized the New York art scene of the time.
