. ‘It’s All About the Materiality’: Watch Jack Whitten Experiment With the Physicality of Paint in His Abstract Artworks « JO LEE MAGAZINE

ART NET NEWS – For the first time ever, an entire exhibition dedicated to the late artist Jack Whitten’s landmark “Greek Alphabet” series is on view at Dia Beacon, expanding the public’s understanding of Whitten’s experimental practice. In the series, Whitten departs from his earlier Abstract Expressionist style of painting and instead adopts the Greek alphabet as the starting point for black and white compositions, created with handmade tools and unique applications. Whitten continued to experiment with the physicality of paint on canvas throughout his career, switching from oil to acrylic in the 1960s and moving toward more conceptual ideas.
