Paul Behnke Phantom 2013 acrylic on canvas 18" x 18"
Behnke is an abstract painter living in Brooklyn N.Y. His high key colored abstractions carry on the tradition of abstract painting developed in the middle of the last century by painters such as Hans Hoffman, Franz Kline and others. He invents possibilities with his intuitive use of color and form in his compositions. Like a jazz master, he reconfigures tradition into a personal vision through improvisation. Behnke also authors a very informative blog called Structure and Imagery which documents much of what is happening in the NYC painting world.
