8 from the UFO and Probe series

Sidney Gross

American 1921-1969
oil n canvas
 
    The UFO series was the focus of his 1967 exhibit, though the combination of his earlier abstract expressionist style with hard edged color fields had been first seen the previous year. Both his 1966 Probe series and his UFO series seem to be tributes to the space age.

     An example of this period is in the Witchita Museum. In their catalog entry,  Howard E. Wooden wrote:
     "Gross added a new dimension by introducing a hard edged quality to splintery and irregular multicolored forms … a chaotically-organized cluster of small, brightly-colored interlocking shapes … In sharp contrast is the more orderly arrangement of the structure at the right that appears to be energetically charged and, like a rocket, soars upwards linking the massive black area in the lower register of the canvas with the pure white space above, unbroken but for the delicate orange and blue diagonal bars … One of the most significant stylistic achievements of Sidney Gross … was his extremely sensitive ability to harmonize the opposing romantic and classical poles of expression that for many centuries have dominated Western thought and the character of Western art. "
