Ian Davenport is a British artist whose painting techniques remind me the methods we use in the course VA 202. I found some info about the artist on wikipedia:

“Many of Davenport’s works are made by pouring paint onto a tilted surface and letting gravity spread the paint over the surface. He has usually worked on medium density fibreboard rather than canvas, and most often employs household gloss paint, meaning the viewer can see their own reflection in the work. He has made a number of diptychs and triptychs as well as single works.

Davenport’s use of dripped paint and gravity has been compared to similar techniques employed by Helen Frankenthaler and Morris Louis in the 1950s and 1960s. Other possible influences on his work include Jackson Pollock and Bridget Riley.”
