Description

Composed of undulating, organic shapes, Alice Baber’s abstract compositions vibrate with color. To achieve this luminous effect in her paintings, she applied transparent layers of diluted oil paint to her primed canvases, a time-consuming process that often required further thinning with a turpentine-soaked rag, a method she adapted to create the litho stone.

While Baber used a variety of abstract forms in her work, she preferred elongated circles, as she believed they imparted the greatest sense of motion across the composition.
