Sam Gilliam’s work focuses on the relationships between color, form, texture, and the surface to which it is applied. The compositions are layered with both thick, gestural brushstrokes and more graceful expressive lines. ‘Running Naked I’ is a prime example of Gilliam’s style, filled with layers of bold colors and striking lines.

Sam Gilliam (American, b.1933) is known for his involvement in both the Color Field and Lyrical Abstractionist movements. His unique practice has been defined by a continuous experimentation with the conventional boundaries of canvas and color. Gilliam’s style was further shaped by the cultural and social experiences of African Americans in the 1960s; his bold and unconventional works reflect the influence of jazz icons such as Miles Davis and John Coltrane. Gilliam’s work is featured in major public collections such as the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pennsylvania, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Tate Modern, London.
