Painter Ronnie Landfield responds in print to recent criticism of the hard edge areas of color that appear at the bottom of each of his paintings.

Landfield discusses the origin, formal, and meaning of these color bars in functional, art historical, and political terms.

The exhibition Ronnie Landfield: Structure and Color was recently on view at Stephen Haller Gallery, New York.
