FRANK STELLA "ALUMINUM" LITHOGRAPH, 1970
This fantastic minimal and mesmerizing Frank Stella print relates to one his most famous works, now in the permanent collection of the Tate Modern (London).
The hypnotic form was first realized in the canvas of "Six Mile Bottom" and then revisited for a series of prints entitled the "Aluminum Series"
In these works, Stella unites several of his most marked and insurgent artistic elements; the shaped canvas, the absence of color, the use of household paints, irrational geometry and a highly ambiguous title.
"Aluminum" was created at time when Stella had established himself as one of the most innovative abstract painters.
In 1970 the Museum of Modern Art, New York presented a retrospective of Stella's work making him the youngest artist at the time to receive such a distinction.
Stella began working in printmaking in the mid-sixties and it would continue to be an important part of his practice.
This example from "Aluminum" is a paradigm of his work.
