My new favorite banner of all time

The canvas was his ally.

The paint and trowel were his weapons.

And the art world was his enemy.

I never even knew I had a favorite banner, until now.

I got it from this tweet from the Clyfford Still Museum:

Lyrical Abstraction of the Day: Terry Chipp

Okay, the lines are a little angular to be 100% lyrical, but close enough.

Deep, brooding, oceanic atmosphere broken up by strange angular structures that look like sticks bound together.  Love the iridescent effect of the background.

See more of Terry Chipp’s art at his website.
