Spanierman Modern is pleased to announce the opening on October 21, 2010 of Charlotte Park, an exhibition and sale of works in oil, mixed media, and gouache by a leading figure in the abstract expressionist movement. Park, who was married to the artist James Brooks and a close friend of Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner, launched her own version of abstract expressionism in the early 1950s, developing a dynamic, vibrant approach to express a wide emotional range. Her work, and that of other women artists who contributed to this movement, remained overlooked while waves of critical acclaim accrued to their male counterparts, partly due to the belief that the art in this idiom was necessarily masculine. This attitude has been dispelled in recent years, as the art by women such as Park has been given recognition and acknowledged for the important dimension it provided to the movement.
