Interesting Juxtaposition

Karl Benjamin  # 11  1975  oil on canvas  28" x 28"

Alex Couwenberg  Niagra  2010  acrylic on canvas  72" x 66"

Patrick Wilson  Grill Master  2013  acrylic on canvas  41" x 37"

Couwenberg and Wilson were MFA graduates from Claremont College in Pomona, Ca. Karl Benjamin was teaching there for years and had influence over them and a lot more painters that have gone through the program there. I can usually spot painting grads from Claremont, they have a strong sense of structure and modulated color to their essentially modernist  abstract work.
