Color Field painter Friedel Dzubas was a pioneer of the stain painting technique alongside Helen Frankenthaler, Morris Louis, and Kenneth Noland. His earliest works evoked Paul Klee and William Baziotes, but he soon moved towards working exclusively in colorful stain painting, scrubbing thick layers of color into large, unprimed canvases. The staining process created fields of dense color and other areas where the color seemed almost translucent; for Dzubas, these paintings referenced natural phenomena, emotion, the painterly gesture, and the experience of color itself.
