For forty years, Al Loving experimented with materials and process to expand the definition of modern painting, drawing on everything from experimental jazz to his family’s quilting tradition. In the 1980s, Loving broke free of the flat image, using heavy rag paper to make three-dimensional collages in brilliant colors. The work is radical, beautiful, and deeply human. In the artist’s words, “I chose the spiral as a symbol of life’s continuity. It became an overall wish for everyone.”
