NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

Wetterling Gallery is proud to present a completely new series of works by the American artist Frank Stella in the exhibition Freestanding

Frank Stella has been pushing boundaries for decades, constantly seeking out new means of art-making — and succeeding time and again. Stella’s preoccupation with formalist concerns has led to intensive and rich explorations of line, colour, texture and the potential of the pictorial surface to reach beyond the flat canvas to the realm of volume, space and light. Exploring how to excise illusionistic space from painting, Stella created the seminal Black Paintings, credited by some as reinventing Modernism and establishing the basis for Minimalism. Loosening the boundaries of the pictorial surface by introducing relief into his art, Stella eventually moved into three-dimensional sculpture and architecture, which have been his main concern in recent years. Stella’s collaboration with master printer Ken Tyler led to the breakthrough technique referred to today as offset lithography. Stella is recognised as being as important to the art of fine printmaking as to painting
