Hoffman's Art Theory
Abstract expressionist artist, Henry Hofmann, developed an artistic approach and theory called "push and pull", which he described as interdependent relationships between form, color, and space. He was powerfully influenced by Matisse’s use of color and Cubism’s displacement of form. His later work reflected this style in the 1950s and 60s.
In the late fifties, Rauschenberg coined the term "combine" for a work that joins elements of painting and sculpture. Rauschenberg sought an experience of assimilation without anyalysis of any kind. This work had a lot to do with displacement.
Philosophical "non-movement" that was concerned with individualtiy and the uniqueness of subjective experience. Significantly influenced American art from 1945, when the works of Kafka, Sartre, and then Heidegger began to appear in English.
Greenberg "Modernist Painting" essay
