ART NEWS, 1961
by Lawrence Campbell
Elise Asher, Budd Hopkins, Joop Sanders
[Stuttman; to Jan. 31] are well-known in New York’s avant-garde circles. Each works distinctively and rather mysteriously. Miss Asher paints free concentrations of small color shapes which flutter, like birds, within a whitened space. Hopkins constructs forms which suggest a gate, a window or an opening into a world beyond the colored expanse of his picture. Sanders’ works have to do with a relentless power. His paintings are very slow-moving, like the shift of a glacier. He pushes his undulating tides, all one color or nearly one, against one another. He works with very limited means, but the paintings are not limited emotionally.
