Details

Louis Buhl & Co. is proud to announce Richard Colman's Cold Shoulder and Shame Diptych. Colman is an American artist whose work blends figurative imagery and bold geometry. Typically using symmetrical compositions, Colman explores themes of human sexuality, societal hierarchies, life, and death. He moves freely between figuration and abstraction, at times focusing on pattern to such a degree that it overwhelms any recognizable components in his painting; other times he privileges figures and narratives. Also producing sculpture and installation works, Colman incorporates a variety of media, including pencils, paper, wood, porcelain, plaster, glue, nails, and tape—typically using vibrant colors. “Color is not something I am very comfortable with, I am not a natural colorist,” the artist has said. “For me, it takes a lot of work to figure that stuff out so part of it for me is just the challenge, but I also like the idea of making thematically dark paintings using very bright colors.”

 

“Our goal working on this collaboration with Richard, was to capture the nuances in his paintings. His work has these subtle shifts in value/hue, will also containing bold vibrant colors, both creating complexity. We obtained an equivalent effect via screen printing by using transparent colors and over-printing layers. His work is also void of line work so we also needed to minimize the subtleties of the traps (where colors next to each other need overlap in the printing process). The result is a highly technical print with a very small margin for error that looks like a painting, void of brush strokes and textures.” - POP!NK Editions
