Abstract Pointillism

Andrew Forge

Most anyone, when asked about pointillism will immediately think of the time of the Impressionists. Hardly anyone even wonders if there was or is such a thing as abstract pointillism. Yes there is and it would be a wonderful thing if some Art Museum would do an informative show on it. Several years ago when I first started doing "research" on the net, this is the kind of art I was looking for and it's hard to find; mainly because they just don't describe it as abstract pointillism.

This first image "September” (1995-1996). Oil on canvas. 60” x 48”, is from an informative and insightful article in the Brooklyn Rail .

The next two images; "October" 1993-1995, and "Heavy Hemlocks II", 2000 are from the Betty Cunningham Gallery as posted on - where you'll find additional images.

Please visit the Betty Cunningham Gallery where you can see 22 images of his work. My favorite is "Snow" and "Untitled". Check it out.
