Gene Davis
Witch Doctor: abstract modern minimalist color field drawing with rainbow colors

1973

$1,200

About

Vibrant magenta, yellow, orange, brown, purple, lime green, jungle green, dark green, cerulean, and sky-blue lines take on the organic quality of handmade paper, resulting in this subtle iteration of Gene Davis’ iconic color field stripe paintings. The delicate repeated marks evoke sound waves and rhythm, and the title suggests the colorful costume or dance of a witch doctor. Paper: 39.75 x 30 in. / 100.5 x 76 cm. Image: 18.25 x 10.25 in. / 51 x 26 cm. Lithograph on Hodgkinson oatmeal handmade paper. Signed by the artist, dated 1973, and numbered lower right in pencil. A copy of this lithograph is in the collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.
