Frank Stella, monumental mixed media, 1971

Frank Stella shunned emotion by using simple types of paint and brushes. His colourfield paintings gave the impression he worked as a house painter. Stella refused to spread paint in order to seduce and expressed himself objectively.

‘Cieszowa’ is made on a wooden panel, shaped according to his lines (shaped canvas), enabling him to emphasize his feeling for colours and lines even more. His paintings of monochrome lines illustrate his mastery of post-painterly abstraction. The symmetrical patterns create an artificial impression and have an intentionally destructive effect.
