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.
