Frank Stella at NSU Art Museum
The NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale opened a comprehensive Frank Stella exhibition earlier this month. The showcase traces the evolution of approaches and inspirations that have shaped the American artist’s 60-year long career. Curated by Bonnie Clearwater, the Frank Stella: Experiment and Change showcase (on view till 8 July 2018) presents over 300 works including iconic pieces drawn from his Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism and Maximalism periods, sculptures from the Moby Dick series, but also rarely seen sketches and notes from the artist’s “working archive.” Such dynamic documentation gives new insight into Stella’s method and his wide range of interests: everything from art history to the latest developments in rapid prototyping technology. Material samples of fluorescent pigment, carbon fibre and titanium reveal the genesis of renowned works like his 1973 concentric square paintings; initially plotted using the visceral qualities of pencilled lines.
