The American painter Jonathan Lasker (born 1948) is one of the most important contemporary artists to plumb the possibilities of abstract vocabularies in the wake of the end of abstraction as a worldwide idiom for modernism. In his large-scale, color-intensive paintings the artist uses a relatively limited repertoire of visual signs from recent art history. From the formal vocabulary of Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, geometric abstraction and Pattern & Decoration he has created new exciting constellations. His biomorphic forms, calligraphic shorthand, fields of stripes and lines, grid structures and checkerboard patterns turn into images of conflict and thus into contemporary manifestations. This publication focuses on the oil paintings from the seventies, supplemented by drawings and preliminary sketches.
