In the 1940’s and 50’s, America’s audacious painters veered away from depicting the world as it looks, opting instead for interior worlds, or simple records of their actions.  Abstract Expressionism was the first truly American modern art movement, and it was a huge psychological leap away from anything before it.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports a new show at the Honolulu Museum of Art shows Hawai‘i’s contribution to this world wide movement.

Successful artists today must Tweet incessantly, they do Instagram and Pinterest, they collaborate and interact with their audiences all day long.  Other artists, like those of the past, work alone for long periods, on art which often is not seen beyond their studio walls.
