Michigan’s Kresge Art Museum’s Fall show “Paintings That Paint Themselves, or so it seems” is inspired by what the curator, April Kingsley, believes is a new trend in art. The paintings in the show “all take the artist’s hand out of the painting in exciting new ways. Viewers are immediately taken with the beauty of the paintings’ sleek surfaces, but are left with a tantalizing question: Just how were these paintings made?”

The idea of painting in a manner that looks as if the painting made itself is not a new one yet the museum believes the recent works they are showing are radically different from Jackson Pollock’s paint-splattered canvases and “make Kenneth Noland look like an expressionist in comparison”. Many of these new approaches rely on technological innovations such as computers, high-tech painting machines, Mylar and body suits to escape the effects of layers of epoxy.
