Tidal Surge


This painting embodies the personal icons Webb has assumed over his many years as a painter, observer, and man about town: the ladder, a wiggly chair form, the triangle form which could be a Navy semaphore or a sail or an ancient hieroglyph. These objects/characters are organized in a collage-like manner, maybe like a scrapbook of thoughts.

ROBIN SAYS: Not only does the art you choose speak to your inner self and express feelings that can’t be put into words, but it has the power to accentuate your other design elements, rounding out the experience you seek to create within your rooms.

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.
