A vibrant and colorful character himself, the expressionistic quality of Karel Appel’s lithographs and prints denote an enthusiasm for exploring subconscious stimuli. Karel Appel: The Color of Chaos demonstrates Appel’s provoking study of the left-brain forces of creativity and their repression by the rationality of the right brain. Although deeply rooted in theory, his style has been described as “childlike,” because it suggests a more spontaneous approach to art making than traditional methods imply.
