Philip A. Solman Abstract Geometric Painting 1980
Artist: Philip A. Solman Title: Untitled Abstract (P306) Date: 1980 Medium: Oil on canvas board Philip A. Solman (d. 1982) was an artist and electrical engineer. He lived and worked in Queens. His older brother, Joseph Solman, was well-regarded painter. In the 1960s, Philip Solman primarily produced sculpture, assembling figurative works from everyday industrial materials, including rebar. In the 1975/80, he switched to painting, working in a semi-abstract mode. Solman’s work is obviously indebted to such modernist masters as Picasso, Klee, Matisse, Kandinsky, and Stuart Davis, whose pictures he saw at the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum. The high-key colors and hard-edged geometric forms of this painting reflect Solman’s awareness of the graphic styles of punk and New Wave bands of the downtown scene c. 1980.
