Label Text: Emerging on the art scene in 1966 with vibrant, gestural canvases, Dan Christensen displayed the kind of burgeoning talent that attracted many collectors and museums. This lithograph exhibits the improvisational quality of his sprayed, acrylic “loop” paintings which were garnering acclaim in New York at the time. Like Anuszkiewicz, Christensen achieves a sense of movement through color interactions, though his expressive, speckled lines were a departure from his contemporary’s hard-edged geometric forms.
