Mixed Media Abstract 2D Art Piece Where No Sea Runs by Richard Slimon Spring 1962


Additional information


We love this mixed media abstract 2D art piece aka painting!!!! It was done in 1962 by renowned Kansas artist, Richard Slimon. Its awesome color pallet reminds me of the golds of the Kansas wheat fields and the blues of the wide-open Kansas skies. On this large piece Slimon skillfully applied tissue paper and latex paint to create abstractions that play off each other and combine to make a gorgeous single image. This spectacular piece of art hung above a gorgeous Action Office desk in a most handsome mid-century modern home since 1966 and was accompanied by the likes of a Burke office chair and Thayer Coggin Milo Baughman sofa till just weeks ago.


Richard Slimon attended St. Louis School of Fine Art at Washington University where he received his BFA in painting. Soon after he received a graduate fellowship from the University of Wichita where he earned his MFA degree and served as teaching fellow. During this time, he served a short stint as Acting Director of the Wichita Art Museum. He has been the Artist-In-Residence at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. And is currently Professor Emeritus at Emporia State University, Emporia, Kansas where he taught drawing and painting for many years. Among his many awards is a purchase from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters.


This is an absolutely awesome example of mid-century abstract mixed-media original art. You need to make it yours.

Fabulous mixed media abstract 2D art piece by renowned Kansas artist Richard Slimon titled Where No Sea Runs. This signed piece is in wonderful over all condition. There are 3 small places where it looks like some of the tissue paper may be missing; however, it is hard to tell because of the abstract design and does not detract from its fabulous look. Its slat type original framing may need replaced or restored. Please see photos. Signed and dated on reverse Spring 1962.
