Jack Youngerman’s work combines hard-edged geometry with organic forms and fluid contours. Influenced by Henri Matisse while living in Paris in the 1940s and 1950s, his works conjure various associations: Matisse’s paper cutouts, Rorschach patterns, and kaleidoscopic mandalas. This work, the first print in the Changes portfolio, is an exemplar of the bright, joyful works that defined the post-painterly abstraction of the 1960s and 1970s, and of which Youngerman was an undisputed master.
