2: Mark Rothko Chicago Museum of Art / Buffy 2010 | "This book is dedicated to my fiancée, Buffy Handy, who has inspired my to go beyond my boundaries in my painting process. She has driven her "PMI" (Positive Mental Attitude) that her Father has instilled to her, onto me. I am blessed to have Buffy in my like." I N T R O D U C T I O N In the early 1970's, William Tarcy was among a group of young painters at the Ohio State University who studied abstract expressionism. We worked in a variety of styles, but generally shared a commitment to creating large scale, abstract works. Studies in analytical psychological theories of the collective

3: unconscious and primitive mythology, and a belief that expressiveness was achieved in part, through the physical process of painting. Projecting the imprint of philosophy, art history, and the university experience into visual form, the artists under Professor King and Professor Star, incorporated both chance and control while painting with a physical immediacy and gesture. During these early years, two somewhat divergent stylistic tendencies emerged within the abstract expression movement: chromatic abstraction, as seen in the coloristic paintings as of Mark Rothko, and gestural abstraction or action painting, as exemplified by the energetically brush works of Willem de Kooning and Frantz Kline, and the action paintings of Jackson Pollock.....these three Artists influenced my work to this day. Total physical involvement of the artist defines action painting; to "walk around it, work from all four sides, and to be in the painting." The paintings are a result of both split-second decision making, choreography, and chance. By focusing attention on the very act of painting, allows you to understand the creative process. Each physical performance and decision is a unique, spontaneous, and unrepeatable event. The final product is always subject to artistic will and emotion. These abstract works legitimize the convergence and mastery of chance, intuition, and control which makes each painting unique. "With chosen paint colors, media tools, emotional expression and physical action, I control the flow of the paint to generate beauty and order, there is no accident." William Allen Andrew Tarcy
