Unique and affordable home decor by 87-year-old artist Mort Barish brings vibrant color and energy into any living space.GIG HARBOR, Wash., Sept. 18, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — New York City, in the 1940's and 1950's was a hotbed of music, art and theatre. Everyone from Ella Fitzgerald to Duke Ellington and Sidney Bechet could be heard somewhere in the city. Artists like Benny Goodman and Frank Sinatra were there to beguile and entertain. This period also ushered in a new movement in art called Abstract Expressionism.
Led by Jackson Pollock, Abstract Expressionism became the most exciting art form of the era. It involved energy, attitude and spontaneity as attributes for creating art, and replaced the depiction of objective subjects.
Admirers of the Expressionist art form have very few places to go to personally enjoy and own this art. Until now, one could pay up to $140 million for an original Jackson Pollock, or could buy a reproduction print. But this has all changed.
Those interested in Expressionist Art can now avail themselves of a variety of original art creations, every one an original work of Abstract Expressionism, a veritable gold mine of creative treasures that can be afforded by anyone. A new art studio called Expressionist Arts has dedicated itself to producing the creative and original art products that reflect the era and artistry of the Jackson Pollock days of the 1950's in New York City. Expressionist Arts Studio offers a selection of dinnerware, mugs, plates, and planters, as well as paintings on canvas, all originals, all created in the Jackson Pollock Expressionist tradition.
Many of these items sell for under $100 and each work of art is signed and dated by the artist, Mort Barish, an 87-year-old expressionist artist who lived and worked in New York during the Jackson Pollock 1950's era. Barish had an apartment in Greenwich Village in New York at Bleecker and McDougal streets, just a few blocks from where Jackson Pollock lived. During those years, Greenwich Village was where writers and artists hung out and partied together. Barish, who was in his early twenties, believes he had been at parties also attended by Pollock. Is it possible that some of the aura and vibrations rubbed off from one to the other?
The art offered by Barish is new and exciting. Barish paints dinnerware and home decor with the same technique, energy and attitude that he does on his Jackson Pollock inspired canvases. Little corners that were dull and uninteresting become alive with Expressionist painted mugs. Window sills that displayed ordinary planters become a wondrous display of vibrant color and energy. Run of the mill dinnerware may now be replaced with energy and attitude and unheard of color and abandon.
These artistic creations are perfect for those who wish to give an original gift or own a unique work of art.
