Silk screen
a printmaking process in which stencils are applied to a screen of silk or similar material stretched on a frame. Paint or ink is forced through the open areas of the stencil onto paper beneath.
Frankenthaler introduced the technique of painting directly on to an unprepared canvas so that the material absorbs the colors. She heavily diluted the oil paint with turpentine or kerosene so that the color would soak into the canvas.
Color field
Abstract style that emerged in the 1950s after Abstract Expressionism and is largely characterized by abstract canvases painted primarily with large areas of solid color. 2. Painting that uses visual elements and principles of design to suggest that areas of color stretch beyond the canvas to infinity; figure and ground are given equal emphasis.
Artists here use photographs and body casts to attain an excruciating degree of realistic detail, resulting in "the characteristically cool, impersonal appearance, the preoccupation with common or industrial subject matter", but also, as a result, the works paradoxically have an unreal quality. 2. emphasized producing artworks based on scrupulous fidelity to optical fact.
