BRAM BOGART, informal material painting, 1959
several works in the collection

Bram Bogart’s informal material paintings manifest the broad and elegant trails of a mass of paint that seems to well up on its own. Rich-textured colour fields seem to delight in the tangible knobs and craters. His voluptuous shifts of paint hold a physical strength as well as a sensual allure that Bogart fails to hide. Composition is an informal piece and the result of the artist’s unconstrained action painting and dripping.
