Jack Lembeck
Swingline (1988) typifies Abstract Illusionism and Jack Lembeck's oeuvre. In this abstract painting, colorful lines, spots, dribbles, and splashes of paint are reflected in echoes and shadows of gray and blue that dance upon a flat, monochromatic field to create the illusion of three dimensional space. A relatively brief phase of Abstract Expressionism, Abstract Illusionism developed from experiments with line and color to express emotion and movement and from Op (Optical) Art, the study of color combinations that suggest three dimensions on two dimensional surfaces.
One of the most celebrated of the Abstract Illusionists in the 1970s and 1980s, Lembeck received a B.F.A. from Kansas University and an M.F.A. from Yale in 1970, where he remained as an instructor in Yale's art department until 1972. Lembeck then established a career in Soho as a professional artist, exhibiting his paintings nationally and internationally. His works are included in the permanent collections of the Guggenheim Museum, The Phoenix Art Museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Orlando Museum of Art, among others.
