John Seery Mamamita 1975 Acrylic on Canvas 57.5 x 52 inches Available for Sale DM for inquiries John Seery (born 1941) is an American artist who is associated with the lyrical abstraction movement. He was born in Maspeth, New York, was raised in Flushing, Queens, and as a teen, moved to Cincinnati, Ohio. Seery studied at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio from 1959 to 1963 then continued his studies at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and Ohio State University in Columbus.


In 2010 Katie Donoghue interviewed John Seery for WhiteWall Magazine. When asked about his association with the Lyrical Abstraction Movement, he had this to say:


 “This period was not an act of contrivance by the artists. The name came from a collector named Larry Aldrich. Many at the time thought Lyrical Abstraction was reaction against some previous form of painting, but it was an affirmation of painting. Rather than attacking the painting from the outside, it was more of an entering into or inhabiting the painting.”


Mamamita, a 57.5 x 52-inch acrylic on canvas, painted in 1975 is a prime example of the post Abstract Expressionist aesthetic Seery captured while following through on the sediments of the Ab Ex movement.
