About Usuyuki (ULAE 211)

“Usuyuki (ULAE 211)” is an abstract artwork by the artist Jasper Johns, who has been associated with the art movement known as Abstract Expressionism. This genre of art is characterized by an abstract style, which emphasizes expressive, non-representational forms.

The artwork itself is a vertical composition that employs a palette of pastel hues. It features a series of overlapping and intersecting lines and shapes that create a textured pattern reminiscent of crystalline structures or frosted glass. The use of light colors contributes to the delicate and ethereal quality suggested by the title, “Usuyuki,” which is a Japanese term referring to light, thin snow. The piece does not convey a direct representation of any specific object but rather invites contemplation through its interplay of color and form, thereby embodying the ideals of Abstract Expressionism wherein the subjective emotional response of the viewer is paramount.
