Alan Ebnother (born December 26, 1952, Alameda, California, United States) is a contemporary American artist. His practice as an artist is usually associated with monochrome, concrete, modernist, post, color-based, radical, minimalist, and abstract painting.
Ebnother has been bustling and dynamic in Stanley, New Mexico previously 2000. He mixes and grinds his own pigments. His oils, in hand-ground abstemious pigment on stretched linen and wood panels, are characterized by wealthy impasto, dense pigmentation, and dense markings.[according to whom?]
Ebnother trained as a ballet dancer. He has said that he considers painting and dance to be same art forms: "Painting is a unconditionally sensual and tactile experience, as is dance. Both rely upon instinctual decisions, with the necessary eye entering and judging after the act.” His union of elevation, extension, and report comes through in his dispersed composition and the agility of his paint handling.[according to whom?] The high pigment-to-oil ratio and furrowed surfaces of these paintings add up to Make an unusually saturated color once a grounded, concrete physicality.[according to whom?] For a decade, he worked in monochromatic whites and greens, but his palette has diversified in the past 2008.
