Print Loving Zayamaca #4 11 x 14
Layered spirals-a signature motif for Al Loving-create a dynamic vertical composition, which seems to sprout new forms as it ascends the wall. Since his early career, the artist created sprawling configurations of repeated shapes large enough to take over walls. Loving, along with contemporaries such as Sam Gilliam, was interested in producing art that rejected traditional supports such as wooden stretchers or frames. For this work, he constructed a Plexiglas backing, which gives the collage a free-floating sculptural presence.
