Hard-Edge Oil Painting

Hard-edge oil painting consists of rough, straight edges original oil painting that are geometrically consistent. It encompasses rich solid colors of art reproductions, neatness of surface, and arranged forms all over the oil painting on canvas. The Hard-edge oil painting style is related to Geometric abstraction of fine art painting, Post-painterly Abstraction, and Color Field oil painting. The term Original oil painting was coined by writer, curator and Los Angeles Times art reproduction critic Jules Langsner in 1959 to describe the work of original oil painters from California, who, in their reaction to the more painterly of oil paintings or gestural forms of Abstract expressionism, adopted a knowingly impersonal original oil paint application and delineated areas of painting color with particular sharpness and good clarity. This approach to abstract oil painting became widespread in the 1960s, though California was its creative center of fine art reproductions.

Hard edge oil painting is also a simply descriptive term, as applicable to past works as to future original oil artistic production. The term oil painting on canvas refers to the abrupt transition across "hard edges" between one color area to another color area. Canvas painting Color within "color areas" is generally reliable, that is, homogenous. Hard-edged oil painting can be both figurative and nonrepresentational.

Heidi Daub at Aarhus Original Oil Painting Gallery

Oil Painting Aarhus gallery is excited to exhibit the lively color Original Oil Painting work of the talented Blue Hill Oil Painting artist Heidi Daub September 2-21. The public is invited to an Fine art reproductions opening reception on Friday September 5th from 5-8pm.

With a personal vivid style and recognizable imagery, Heidi's modernistic landscapes play along the border of abstract and representational Original Oil painting.

"I am concerned with ordinary things and the extraordinary ways in which the ordinary shapes our lives. My Oil paintings and Fine art Paintings evolve from an introspection,... an awareness,... There is an aspiration to a holy moment so to speak. How we perceive and feel, the nebulous space between the physical reality of a given situation, person or place, and the perceptions we carry, the curiosity and non-linear ways of looking at time."

Heidi Daub graduated from Montserrat School of Visual Fine Art Reproductions, has lived and worked in Maine since 1984 and exhibited her Oil paintings on canvas widely throughout New England since 1987. Heidi is represented by oil painting galleries throughout New England and her work is housed nationally in many private Oil Painting collections.

In 2008, Heidi has inaugurated the Women of Maine Visionary Fine Arts Reproduction Award to support women involved in audio, visual or literary Fine Arts Paintings who exhibit outstanding commitment and are inspiring to others.
