Jasper Johns

About Artist: Jasper Johns, the American born (1930 - ) Neo-Dadaist and Pop artist is often cited for his infamous series, the Flag and Target." In both groups of works his key traits are portrayed: the use of American imagery, painterly brush strokes, and repetition. While his use of American imagery (Ballatine Ale Cans) and repetition (Three Flags) can be related to the Pop Art movement, which portrayed popular culture and objects that were a part of everyday life, his style in which he painted had more of an expressive quality (for example his Crosshatch series, often titled by numbers such as #4, #6). This can be understood as influenced by the Abstract Expressionists (like Jackson Pollock). Yet, by using popular images, modern materials, and the work still taking on an expressive quality, John's work can be understood as Neo-Dadaist - a period in art that was understood as an intermediary between Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. Regardless as to what you wish to qualify what movement Johns' work falls under, as an artist, his interest in going beyond the boundaries, questioning how he can turn traditional mediums such as paint, bronze, and wood into innovative and incredibly intriguing works of art on canvas, makes him a highly sought after and appreciated artist.
