Death at 81 of Jennifer Bartlett, a Legend of the New York Scene Who Forged a New Path for Painting.

Jennifer Bartlett passed away on July 25 in Amagansett, New York, at the age of 81. She was known for her experiments in painting that involved predetermined rule systems. Bartlett’s death was verified by a spokesperson for Paula Cooper Gallery, which hosted some of her earlier performances.

Bartlett has always been regarded as a remarkable artist in the eyes of many since her paintings are very different from practically any others created by painters of her period. She developed original strategies for modernizing abstraction without fully embracing conceptual art.

She also accomplished the difficult balancing act of painting in a semi-abstract form while not completely abandoning figuration.

Her topics were very diverse. She produced both more charming, much smaller-scale imagery as well as abstractions grouped in gigantic, epic grids that span enormous walls and created scenes of hospital hallways and brilliant landscapes using grid-like paint dabs. She even created one of the few photos of 9/11 that clearly shows what happened that day.

“One of the best-known painters of her generation, Bartlett seamlessly combined the refined aesthetic of minimalism with expressive and emotional painting, and leaves a vast and varied body of work,” Paula Cooper Gallery and Marianne Boesky Gallery, her two New York representatives, said in a joint statement.
