Further Biographical Context for Henry Bermudez
Born in 1951, Henry Bermudez' creative work was largely influenced by the 1970s. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and development in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the dominant tensions of the preceding decade. Conceptual art emerged as a influential movement, a partial evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the artwork into the spacious outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and looking to engage with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal reflections, creating mysterious and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain importance for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years before, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly influential figures worldwide. New York maintained an important position in the international art world, ensuring that global artists continued to gravitate to the galleries, bars and downtown scene there. Towards the end of the 1970s, the emerging practices of graffiti and street art were beginning to gain attention in the fine art community. Artists including Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat were working in downtown Manhattan and guaranteeing that spray paint and tagging gained some validity as a fine art practice, a trend which would fully develop and dominate throughout the following decade.
