Benjamin Britt, Untitled (Abstract)
Benjamin Britt worked in a variety of styles, including cubism, surrealism, and minimalism. His choice of subject matter was equally diverse, ranging from bold African themes to children, landscapes, and portraiture. In this work, layered curving and geometric lines emerge from a ground of green, yellow, and white angular shapes. A circular form at the center of the composition suggests a facial form, but Britt dissolves any representational imagery.
