Systemic Pattern Painting: Artists of the Criss-Cross Cooperative
Art Week, 09/13/2018
This exhibition surveys Systemic Pattern Painting by a specific group of artists who were part of the Criss-Cross cooperative. These artists lived primarily in New York City and Boulder, Colorado and explored complex mathematically-derived patterns and abstract structures. The cooperative was part of the broader Pattern and Decoration movement from the 1970s. This presentation focuses on artworks mostly from the 1970s and 80s, with a few selections by Dean Fleming from the early 1960s and recent paintings by Clark Richert and Robert Swain.
