Robert Ryman


I saw some of his inspiring work at the new Modern Wing1 of the Art institute of Chicago this past weekend. I was quite taken by it. I think it’s Amazing.

Robert Ryman is “recognized for his remarkable ability to demonstrate innumerable variations within what have become the two defining characteristics of his work: white paint and a square frame2.”

I just love the extreme minimalism of the work. Despite the seeming sparsity of materials, there is a lot of nuance and a lot to study and meditate on in his pieces.
