Kenneth Tyler Collection: National Gallery of Australia
Hope you have a colourful weekend planned!
Here’s artist Paul Jenkins at work in the Tyler Graphics yard, using his signature style of pouring bright pigments and letting gravity and chance direct the composition.
Jenkins, an Abstract Expressionist, taught his painting techniques to the actor Alan Bates for the film ‘An Unmarried Woman’, where he was to play a tormented artist living in New York. He described his style as trying to paint ‘like a crap-shooter throwing dice… it’s a big gamble and that’s why I love it’
