Description

Here we have a vintage 1976 mixed media piece, Black and Red, an ‘earlier work’ by the contemporary East Coast multi-media artist, Steve Linden. Originally from Freeport, New York and educated at the Boston School of the Museum of Fine Arts, the internationally recognized Mr. Linden has been active for several decades and is currently based in the Florida Keys.

Mr. Linden’s work frequently blends banal objects and themes into a tongue-and-cheek apotheosis. Black and Red deals with the subject of “abstraction” in the form of a collage comprised of multiple layers of paint and paper, matted and set in a wooden frame, with a thin piece of glass for protection. Whether this was intended as ‘serious’ abstraction in the tradition of Clyfford Still, or a playful jab at seriousness in the tradition of Robert Rauschenberg is difficult to say, but a cursory look at any of his later works places his sentiments squarely in Rauschenberg’s camp.

Mr. Linden’s signature appears on the bottom right-hand side of the piece, as well as the number “76” written under it, indicating having been completed in 1976. On the backside is a small placard that reads “No.34” – perhaps the 34th piece at a particular exhibition – with the title, “‘Black and Red’ abstract collage” as well as the price, “$945.” This piece will make a handsome addition to any size art collection.

In lovely vintage condition without rips, tears or losses to image (other than what we must suppose were intended by the artist!). Frame presents well and is ready to hang, having minor imperfections consistent with age and occasional handling.
