The Japanese artist Takashi Murakami combines highly refined classical Japanese painting techniques with distinctive Pop sensibilities. Known for his “Superflat” style, directly influenced by manga and anime, the artist creates works that explode with color and playfulness. For the 2015–16 ski season, in collaboration with Aspen Skiing Company, Murakami has produced four unique images, all of which embody his trademark visual aesthetic.
Long considered one of the most important painters bridging the Abstract-Expressionist and Minimalist periods, Agnes Martin created drawings and paintings that incorporate pale washes and delicate pencil marks, developing patterns that preserve the integrity of the artist’s hand. Martin’s Aspen Art Museum exhibition features a selected survey of work that spans her career between 1960 and 2003. Tending toward geometric structures, Martin’s deeply held convictions about the emotive content of her work underlie its apparent reticence and austerity of form.
