Description: In his puzzle-like paintings Michael Eastman uses letters, words and figures as abstract elements--and sometimes for their meaning as well. In this work entitled "Large G under 3 Lines" the information, or disinformation, is the title itself. View paint detail. |
Eastman often uses irregular, graffiti-like writing in making his paintings. Since Michael Eastman enjoys aping the look of naive art, we place him in that category. But, Eastman's approach to his work is cerebral, pointed, and--as in this work-- quite abstract--not at all the urgent, direct attitude typical of a naïf or outsider artist.Visit the Tribeca studio of Michael Eastman whose work is included in the collection of Hirshhorn Museum (Washington,DC) and the Mauntner-Markof Collection (Vienna, Austria).
