Now ready for it’s fourth season, Art Southampton has already cemented its status as the premier contemporary and modern art fair in the Hamptons. It offers the highest quality of 20th and 21st century masters as well as noteworthy emerging artists....We’ve taken the time to select some of our favourite works on display at the fair.

The artist was a leading abstract painter during his lifetime. He drew from a range of Modernist sources to produce colourful, luminous compositions that featured giant dots, whirling loops and grids. Originally trained in classical, figurative painting, Christensen later sought to transcend stylistic restrictions. He also experimented with a range of different tools and ways of applying paint throughout his career. In highly acclaimed early work he used spray guns to paint over square and looping pieces of tape, and then removed the tape to create swirls and grids of colour with shimmering surface effects. Berry Campbell Gallery represent the artist at Art Southampton.

Charlotte Park's important contribution to the Abstract Expressionist movement has been recently acknowledged, and it's about time. Writing in The New York Times, just before Park died in late 2010, Roberta Smith called Park "A natural painter and a gifted colorist." She was overshadowed by the attention given to the work of her husband, James Brooks, even though she painted some of the strongest and most brilliantly colored canvases of her time.

Jill Nathanson | Fluid Measure

June 16, 2015 - Artfix Daily

Nathanson became fascinated by color painting at Bennington College. She arrived at the school in the mid-1970s, when it was at the center of color field abstraction. From Kenneth Noland and Larry Poons, she learned to avoid composing through dark and light tones and to give color an ever-greater role in structuring a painting. Over the last four decades, she has deepened her exploration of color dynamics, seeking to transmit affective realities of seeing. She courts chaos in her method, through employing chance, but she also works methodically—each overlay of color takes a day to dry.  For the viewer, her paintings evoke energies in the body as well as optical experience, and the physical presence of each painting resists immediate assimilation, involving a dynamic, layered search for unity.

This extensive exhibition spanning four generations explores the myriad ways in which artists have employed the impulsive yet de-personalized and non-gestural forces of spray...

From the late sixties, spray assumed a new scale and level of exposure, from Dan Christensen's vast “post-painterly” abstractions—where he used a spray gun to create intersecting coloured loops of paint alive with cool-tempered energies..."
