Strict minimalist painter Alan Uglow died on February 3rd, succumbing to lung cancer. Born in Luton, England he moved to NYC in the 70’s and was most known for his “outlined fields”, sparse linear paintings containing bold areas of negative space framed by various colors and notches. The pieces directly referenced both his contemporaries (and masters like Mondrian) and also his childhood love of soccer (“football” for the rest of the world). Uglow’s works were celebrated for their originality and he continued to produce them in various forms throughout his life.
