Tribute to Vivian Springford (1914-2003). "Following her inclusion in the Denver Art Museum's exhibition catalogue, Women of Abstract Expressionism (Joan Marter 2016), the time is right for a critical revision and appreciation of Springford’s abundant talent and tireless persistence—a story that mirrors those of so many women artists, past and present."

Springford’s stain paintings "create depth without weight, a quiet dynamism blossoming out from one central point on the canvas, radiating into translucence, their scale both cosmic and microscopic, ethereal but also grounded in physical patterns of the universe or human body."
