More Dimensions Than You Know: Jack Whitten, 1979–1989

Text by Richard Shiff.

"Willie Meets the Keeper" (1987) is reproduced from 'More Dimensions Than You Know: Jack Whitten, 1979–1989.'

Jack Whitten (born 1939) is an American abstractionist celebrated for his innovative processes of applying and transfiguring paint in works equally alert to materiality, politics and metaphysics. This publication focuses on more than 20 of the artist’s paintings from the 1980s and features an essay by Richard Shiff, Effie Marie Cain Regents Chair in Art at the University of Texas at Austin.

Whitten holds a unique place in the narrative of postwar American art: over the course of a five-decade career, he has bridged gestural abstraction and process art, experimenting ceaselessly to arrive at a nuanced language of painting that hovers between mechanical automation and personal expression. Whitten has had a profound influence on many artists working today, and was awarded the National Medal of Arts in recognition of his major contribution to the cultural legacy of the United States.

Jack Whitten and the rock-bottom meaning of universality

Jack Whitten and the rock-bottom meaning of universality

"Art must satisfy a very specific personal longing for universality," Jack Whitten wrote in 1979. "A desire to feel completely satisfied. A part of the total structure of things. Abstraction is the only possibility for this type of satisfaction, with figuration we are forever depicting something other than the rock-bottom meaning of universality. For this technological age abstraction is the language." Black in Time I (1980) is reproduced from More Dimensions Than You Know: Jack Whitten, 1979–1989, published by Hauser & Wirth. continue to blog
