Frank Stella Black and Whites

blog Sep 17, 2021
Love these black and white pieces by Frank Stella:
The Black Paintings reflect Stella’s desire to present the viewer with an immediate visual impact, devoid of references to anything outside the work itself. As his friend and fellow artist Carl Andre wrote of the series in the catalogue accompanying the 1959 MoMA show, “Frank Stella is not interested in expression or sensitivity. He is interested in the necessities of painting. . . . His stripes are the paths of brush on  canvas. These paths lead only into painting.”
