Abstract expressionist painting by Henry Putney, circa 1960s. The mid century painting appears as if it may be an image of deconstructed figure. There is no wholly distinct form, only a feeling of familiarity that forms the viewer’s narrative. One can gain a better understanding of the forms when compared to other work by Putney. The full, flesh tone shapes resemble thighs and intimate areas of anatomy. The fork or comb shaped object further signals femininity. Many of Putney’s pieces seem to simultaneously venerate and catechize the power of femininity. Here, the artist seems celebrate the female form all the while acknowledging it’s mystique. The painting is acrylic on canvas board, signed by artist “Henry Putney.” We have several more pieces from Putney.
