Friends On Blends #11
A uniquely-overpainted lithograph with heavy acrylic embellishment.
Peter Max's feminine profiles are among his most famous signature icons, emerging from his sketches as early as 1967. In 'Friends on Blends,' the artist renders the profiles and their shoulders in minimalist, calligraphic brushwork - reminiscent of Matisse.
These fluid profile lines are met with an expressionistic flourish of brushstrokes, vivid color and floral swirls crowning the figures. Their eyes are sultry and half-closed, content in their companionship and setting. The artist has framed the friends with a vibrant color blend border on margins of bold, acrylic color planes. The tranquil subjects are met with daring color - creating an unforgettable work.
