ARTIST BIO: Sam Gilliam born November 30, 1933 is a color field painter and lyrical abstractionist artist. Gilliam, an AfricanAmerican, is associated with the Washington Color School,[1] a group of Washington, D.C. area artists that developed a form of abstract art from color field painting in the 1950s and 1960s. His works have also beendescribed as belonging to abstract expressionism and lyrical abstraction.[2] He works on stretched, draped and wrapped canvas, and adds sculptural 3D elements.
