Envelope for Teresa In Love

Frederic Matys Thursz (American, 1930 1992)

Oil on canvas Gift of Mrs. Frederic Thursz 

In Envelope for Teresa- in-Love layers of viscous color built up through repeated, scraping, glazing and reworking produce a canvas that glows with prismatic intensity. An absence of pre-defined form or structure is evidence of Thursz’s process-driven methods and emphasizes his desire to use color as a means to articulate metaphysical concepts, ideas or emotions.
