Offered here is an original Hilda Skolnick collage depicting an abstract still life of vessels in the Cubist style. It is entirely made from different textures of artist’s linen, a little bit of oil paint in the colored areas, affixed to a linen canvas on a stretcher. It is in its original distressed white frame. The overall size is 20 × 28 inches. The title is “Still Life.” Circa 1958.
Purchase from the estate of her friend Piry Rame. These women were members of a cooperative of female avant-garde artists based on Long Island. They exhibited widely. In the late 1960s the A.I.A. Gallery in Great Neck was one venue, a bit like P.S. 1.
“The experimental nature of Hilda Skolnick’s goals link her work to avant-garde sensibilities.”—The New York Times, 1987.
“Hilda Skolnick’s untitled etching is a particularly successful example. The piece is a composite of abstract shapes, dominated by a split circle and dart-like form, oriented in different directions and varied in texture and density. Instead of simple repetition, Ms. Skolnick has given us subtle variations on a basic theme..” —The New York Times, 1990.
