#NormanCarton was born in Pennsylvania, but worked in New York and Paris. While in New York, he founded a cooperative gallery for artists in lower Manhattan where he developed his characteristic style that emphasized texture and color, making paintings that created a tactile experience. Carton also made murals in the 1930's as part of the WPA (Works Progress Administration), including one that remains at the New School. .-----------------------------------------------------------------------------Carton's work is a part of
"Inspiration & Exploration," a group show featuring paintings, paper works, and sculpture from some of the greatest abstract artists of the 20th century. Inspiration & Exploration showcases how these artists chose to define themselves and their world in a century marked by two world wars, rapid technological and economic change across the globe, radical social movements, and sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Releasing themselves from many of the traditional boundaries of technique, composition, and subject matter, abstract artists were free to investigate non-traditional media, concepts, and visual languages. This exhibition investigates these artists’ sources of inspiration and the various ways they explored their personal style and medium.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beauford Delaney is known for his lyrical abstractions of color and light, his interest in the arts included poetry and jazz. He moved through the circles of both black and white artists and intellectuals in New York with relative ease, but he was also nagged by constant feelings of marginalization, along the lines of race, class, and sexuality.

William Saroyan was born in Fresno, the son of Armenian immigrants. While writing was clearly his most effective and accomplished form of expression, the sheer quantity of his paintings and drawings make them a significant portion of his creative output. The influence of Abstract Expressionism, the focus on gesture and line to communicate the artist’s internal feelings and conflicts, is unmistakable.

Ilya Bolotowsky

Ilya Bolotowsky (1907-1981) was one of the main twentieth century abstract artists in New York. His work reflects a search for philosophical order through visual expression. He embraced cubism and geometrical abstraction much due to being influenced by the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian. Click on the link below to see a few of his works, truly inspiring!
