Hard Edge Puzzle:
Hard-edge painting is a movement that started in 1950s California and eventually spread across the United States. Today the phrase is used to describe a distinctive tendency within abstract painting that features clear compositions of geometric shapes combined with intense color and bold forms. The aesthetic was a departure from the “action painting” techniques of dribbling, splashing, or smearing paint onto canvas, which was popularized by artists such as Jackson Pollock. The goal was to bring more order and less personal projection to abstract painting. Notable artists who adopted the style include Frederick Hammersley, Karl Benjamin, Lorser Feitelson and Frank Stella.
