DESCRIPTION:  Composition Lavender (77B-7) from 1977 is representative of a group of works by Larry Poons in which the artist experimented by pouring paint onto the canvas. This particular work showcases the artist’s ability to orchestrate free flowing paint as well as three-dimensional pools of accumulated paint onto the canvas that creates a lyrical abstraction of poetic density. The painting highlights Poons’ facility to move towards a more painterly, expressive, and innovative creation. These free-falling waterfalls of muted colors “pool” together across the picture against a backdrop of paint that has coursed down the vertically oriented canvas. Poons was known to be extremely inventive in his approach to painting and often changed his technique and artistic approach to a particular work. His early love of music and his attendant passion for its rhythmic beat can be seen in the vitality and movement throughout this work. An unmistakable dynamism in the flow and pooling of paint is foremost in this vibrant and energetic painting.
