Further Biographical Context for Robert Mcclintock
Robert Mcclintock was born in 1958 and was largely influenced creatively by the 1970s. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and development in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the dominant strains of the preceding decade. Conceptual art emerged as a key movement, a partial evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the artwork into the extensive 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 considerations, creating cryptic and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain importance for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years prior, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly powerful figures worldwide. New York maintained an influential position in the international art scene, ensuring that global artists continued to flock to the galleries, bars and downtown scene in the city. International movements gained popularity included feminism, which translated strongly into the visual culture, and photorealism which had begun in the 1960s and enjoyed momentous commercial and critical achievements. For the first time painters and sculptors from Latin America were embraced by the dominant critical and institutional levers in New York.
