Sunday Evening Art Gallery on Thursday — Frank Stella

Frank Stella i(1936-) is an American artist best known for his use of geometric patterns and shapes in creating both paintings and sculptures.

Arguably one of the most influential living American artists, Stella’s works utilize the formal properties of shape, color, and composition to explore non-literary narratives.

For those of us trying to get a grip on modernism, Stella’s paintings  expand the initial monochrome palette to bright colors….

….and later brings his paintings into the the third dimension through the incorporating other non-painterly elements onto the canvas.

He ultimately creates large-scale freestanding sculptures, architectural structures, and the most complex work ever realized in the medium of printmaking.

Stella’s virtually relentless experimentation has made him a key figure in American modernism.More of Frank Stella’s modernism paintings can be found across the Internet.
