Experience pure color poured onto the canvas in a process American artist Helen Frankenthaler called “soak stain.” Explosive landscape of color and abstract forms. I want to acknowledge Whitney Museum of American Art and the book “Originals: American Women Artists,” by Eleanor Munro, resources for this podcast episode. “Orange Mood” is part of the exhibition, “Spilling Over: Painting Color in the 1960s” at The Whitney Museum until August 2019.
