Alan Shields

Space Sisters work from the 1970s

September 2016


Alan Shields: Space Sisters work from the 1970s takes a closer look at Shields’ works on paper and unstretched canvas works of the 1970s. It focuses on Shields’ a growing interest in Post-Minimalism—a movement co-opted by installation and land artists like Richard Serra and Robert Smithson—with a synthesis of material assemblages that fused the lingering hippiedom of the 60s, folk motifs, and non-Western imagery with the techniques of Color Field painting and the fluid gesture of Abstract Expressionism into a thoroughly unique and singular aesthetic.
