Cobra Artist, including Asger Jorn... I like the work created by Asger Jorn, especially the portrait of the woman, his use of shells, ceramics and structures. The work of the Cobra artists which includes thick colorful paint, the heavy usage of black, plus long brush strokes and continuous movement are lively, but "heavy."
For comparison purposes, looking at my art vs this art, I would like to accomplish better push pull and depth in my paintings, without using black. Is it possible???
