Description Edward Avedesian was known for his brightly colored, boldly composed canvases that combined Minimalism's rigor, Pop's exuberance and the saturated tones of Colorfield painting. After moving to New York City in the early 1960s, he joined the dynamic art scene in Greenwich Village, frequenting the Cedar Tavern on Tenth Street, associating with the critic Clement Greenberg, and joining a new generation of abstract artists, such as Darby Bannard, Kenneth Noland, Jules Olitski, and Larry Poons. He was instrumental in the exploration of new abstract methods to explore the primacy of optical experience, breaking from the factility of Abstract Expressionism. Avedisian was included in the annual of the Whitney Museum for the first time in 1963, and two years later, the new direction in art was given recognition by the Museum of Modern Art in its exhibition, The Responsive Eye. His work can be found in numerous museum collections.
