As I’ve mentioned in my last couple of blogs, I have been taking an online course through Coursera.org  Today I finished In the Studio: Postwar Abstract Painting so I want to talk about Weeks 6, 7 and 8: Agnes, Ad & Yayoi, all artists I had not heard of before, shame on me! Agnes Martin, Ad Reinhardt, and Yayoi Kusama, what fun it was to experiment with their styles of abstract expressionism.

Agnes Martin was known for her geometric shapes and grids.

Ad Reinhardt was known for his black paintings.

And Yayoi Kusama was known for her polka dots, installations, performance art, and infinity nets.

Currently, I am working on another piece inspired by Yayoi Kusama’s style but using brighter colors as she has in many of her other works:

More on my attempts in the next blog, plus my final assignments. Have a golden day!
