Harry Carmean's magical space form drawings

Harry Carmean spent a lot of time with his friend painter Lorser Feitelson who created a series of "magical space forms" paintings in the late 1940's. Although Carmean is a primarily figurative artist, it was inevitable that through his association with Feitelson he would also develope an interest in the abstract side of art. (To see more of Carmean's abtract side see prior post on Carmean's Hard Edge art). The drawings shown here were done in the 1980's and show the influence of Feitelson's earlier surreal work (top image).
