Further Biographical Context for Ion Cojocaru
Born in 1937, Ion Cojocaru's creative work was largely influenced by the 1950s. Abstract Expressionism, a form of painting that explored ideas of spirituality and the sublime, dominated the 1950s. A number of artists concentrated on the formal properties of painting, and action painting took inspiration from the political freedom of the United States, in opposition to the strict strictures of the Soviet bloc. Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Frank Kline, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Adolph Gottlieb were influential artists of this period. The male dominated environment has been subsequently revised to recognise the contributions of female artists such as Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, and Louise Bourgeois, amongst others.
