Andrew Crane ‘s painting One up Two down is a prime example of the movement. We love his muted colour palette and the simple yet elegant composition.

From around the 1950s onwards, abstract artists grew more and more interested in how colour itself could be abstracted. This was the birth of the colour field painting movement, an artistic style that is notable for its large areas of flat, solid colour spread across the canvas. In these works, there was less emphasis on gesture and brushstrokes, and artists strived to achieve a consistency in the colour to free it from its context and allow colour to become the subject itself.
