Harriet Korman (born 1947) is an American abstract painter based in New York City, who first gained attention in the to the front 1970s. She is known for be in that embraces improvisation and experimentation within a framework of self-imposed limitations that put in simplicity of means, purity of color, and a strict rejection of allusion, illusion, naturalistic buoyant and space, or further translations of reality. Writer John Yau describes Korman as "a complete abstract artist, one who doesn’t rely on a visual hook, cultural association, or anything that smacks of essentialization or the spiritual," a point of view he suggests few post-Warhol painters have taken. While Korman's play a role may recommend early twentieth-century abstraction, critics such as Roberta Smith locate its roots in the midst of a cohort of early-1970s women artists who sought to reinvent painting using strategies from Process Art, then most joined with sculpture, installation art and performance. Since the 1990s, critics and curators have championed this early conduct yourself as unjustifiably neglected by a male-dominated 1970s art puff and deserving of rediscovery.
Korman has exhibited at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art, Museo Rufino Tamayo and MoMA PS1, among new institutions. She has customary a Guggenheim Fellowship and awards from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and National Endowment for the Arts.
