daily #artistbirthdays (july 27): #emersonwoelffer

Mary Corse is an American painter and light artist best known for her luminous white monochromes.

Her Minimalist works are made using acrylic paint mixed with microspheres—small glass beads commonly used in highway lane divider paint—which interact with light differently depending on the viewer’s physical relation to the work.

Within the vertical bands of paint, the artist’s brushstrokes are intentionally preserved to engage materiality as a means of interrogating the objective reality she sought in her early work.

Happy Winter Solstice ❄️! Today marks the first day of winter, with the shortest day and longest night of the year.

While teaching at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, Emerson Woelffer painted “ Winterscape,” one of a series of abstract works responding to Colorado’s winters and incorporating a newfound interest in automatic writing and abstract communication.

Happy Birthday to #WillemdeKooning, one of the leading figures of Abstract Expressionism, born #onthisday in 1904. Included in the ICA's 2015 exhibition Leap Before You Look: Black Mountain College, de Kooning's work on paper "Asheville" is featured here (far left) next to #EmersonWoelffer's "Last Internment" and #ElainedeKooning's series of Untitled works (back wall).
.
In the summer of 1948, #JosefAlbers invited Willem de Kooning to teach at Black Mountain College where De Kooning continuously worked on another one of his paintings, also titled "Asheville.” Both these works take their name from the North Carolina town near Black Mountain College. De Kooning's explorations would become central claims of Abstract Expressionism, primarily an allover composition, in which no one part of the canvas is any more or less important than any other. This democratization of the pictorial field would have had strong ethical echoes at Black Mountain, a community of progressive-minded individuals who were struggling with the tension between the role of the individual and that of the community.

Today is the birthday of Emerson Woelffer, an American painter known for his Abstract Expressionist compositions of jagged forms. He studied under László Moholy-Nagy at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago before joining the WPA Arts Program in 1938. Woelffer went on to teach at Black Mountain College in North Carolina alongside Mark Rothko and Buckminster Fuller. He also befriended Robert Motherwell, with whom he shared an interest in jazz music and sculpture. The artist relocated to California in the 1960s, where he taught at both the California Institute of Arts in Valencia and the Otis Art Institute. (bio via artnet)⁠

Layering is the recipe for success. We consider textures, patterns, prints, materials, colors and tones of everything together. Here we created a den that was to be functional as well as inspirational and reflect the client's lifestyle. We used a textured plaster wall-covering from gregoriuspineo as the backdrop for the modern art collection, a colorful antique Sultan area rug from iloulianrugs to ground the room and blue linen curtains to highlight the quilted pillows and the patterned trim on the sofa. The room was thoughtfully layered to direct the eye without overwhelming it and gave a small room a big statement. This creative process is what makes our job incredibly rewarding. .

This Monday was the birthday of Emerson Woelffer, born July 27, 1914!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Before coming to Black Mountain College, Woelffer taught at the Institute of Design (the New Bauhaus), where he developed his signature style, embracing distinct shapes and abstract forms. Among the artists he met at the Institute of Design was Buckminster Fuller. At Fuller's invitation, Emerson Woelffer and his wife Diana came to BMC, and he served as faculty during the summer session of 1949. "At Black Mountain," writes art historian Mara Kelly, "Woelffer continued his interest in abstract forms; however, unlike his paintings at the ID, the ideology at Black Mountain encouraged him to loosen up his formal painting manner."⁠⠀
⁠⠀
From Black Mountain College, the Woelffers traveled up the coast, lived in the Yucatan Peninsula for six months collecting Maya artifacts, moved to Colorado Springs, traveled to Europe, and then made their way to Los Angeles. Emerson's career over the next several decades earned him the moniker "the grandfather of LA Modernism."⁠⠀
⁠⠀
This concise publication is the catalogue for the exhibition “Emerson Woelffer: At the Center + At the Edge," held February 1 - May 31, 2008 at Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center. It includes a short essay by exhibition curator Brian E. Butler, color reproductions, select chronology, and a checklist of works loaned to the exhibition.⁠⠀

Loving the Jonathan Shahn sculpture quietly taking in the splendor of the room. We should all be this lucky. What do you think he’s thinking?
