Art In Black And White

I know that the new it painting trend seems to be the modernist black on white abstract. The originals from the mid century truly have the most depth and thought provoking brush stroke as opposed to everyone picking up a roller or brush and slapping some black paint onto a white canvas.  Is it bad to say that I have kind of seen enough of these trendy paintings.? I know they are cool and sharp but if I can't have on original I am not sure that I want to create a duplicate for trend sake, and believe me I thought about it.  However, I have found some black on white art that I would love to have in my home. I feel these have great impact and contain subject matter that speaks to me. Don't think I am saying do away with a black and white abstract if you have one, just open you mind to other forms of black and white that too can create a conversation piece in one's space.
