The Startup Artist/Emily Bauwens

🇺🇸 American
The Startup Artist (Emily Bauwens) is an AbEx painter inspired by The New York School's women artists of the 1950s. "Million Dollar Baby" was created using palette knives to layer and remove oil paint of varying consistencies and patterns in rhythm over time, producing a work dense in texture, light in feel, and shot through with single layers of darker tones and heavy brushwork. This painting heralds the artist's transition from linear paintings to visceral, immediate conceptual works varying in mediums and dimensionality.
