Field of Debris


This is a relatively early work by Webb from 1995. The artist took a stroll through a verdant, elemental stage in his painting style, a departure from his signature urban-based iconography. Here he is evoking aspects of natural flora as he depicts a site replete with man-made detritus - riffing on color and pattern, transforming these cast offs into a thing of beauty.

ROBIN SAYS: A piece of art provides a finishing touch on your space, bringing all the elements of your design and style together to cap off a unique atmosphere that speaks to your individual style.

Born in Kansas, Webb moved to New York in the 1960s, finding himself squarely in the midst of the exhilarating, hugely experimental zeitgeist as Color Field, Minimalism, and Pop were emerging. During this time, Webb explored these various idioms, finally returning to the visual language he felt most suited him: broadly gestural paintings containing cryptic nods to an iconography distinctly his own. His work is rich in materiality (he makes his own oil paints) and often heroic in scale. Click here to see more from Larry Webb.
