2020 Winter – Frank STELLA
This important American painter did not paint to seduce, but rather expressed himself objectively by using simple paints. Frank Stella represented the hard edge and created artificial monochrome stripe paintings with a destructive hard edge between the areas of color. Stella was an innovator in the Post-painterly abstraction.
In the eighties Stella created his colorful three-dimensional organic work, they were metal reliefs with wavy shapes. These wall sculptures are based on the Moby-Dick stories of the American writer Herman Melville. Frank Stella fantasizes in his work the whale force with the outline of a whirlpool full of swirling.
