New York-based artist Francine Tint’s (1943-present) colorful paintings are influenced by and contribute to this long lineage of abstract art. Taking inspiration from artists such as Willem de Kooning and Arshile Gorky, Tint creates lyrically free abstracted paintings that express intuition through color. Tint credits discussions with Clement Greenberg in her studio as a guiding artistic force. Though abstract expressionism is an oft-imitated and commented upon style, Tint’s paintings remain distinctively her own, especially considering the field is largely male-dominated.
