Helen Frankenthaler

Gagosian artist Helen Frankenthaler was a female contender during the time of Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Arshile Gorky. Like these dudes, she utilized color and semi-ambiguous figuration, but eventually found a style where color ruled over line. Her mural in the lobby of the North Bronx Hospital translates her love of soaking canvas in paint into ceramic tile, still achieving the ethereal organic flow of color. Only thing is, I can’t tell if Untitled is supposed to be an ambiguous vaginal form…or a skewed version of the island of Manhattan. Either/or.
