About the Item

If one is interested in Frank Stella's association with Op Art, his hypnotic and minimal "Aluminum Series" from 1970 is a great introduction. The "Aluminum Series" prints were based upon paintings he created in 1961. The titles were inspired by mostly literary allusions. 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. In his prints Stella consciously positioned the shapes towards the left hand margin, with the intention of exaggerating the impact of the form and in turn creating an almost signature arrangement. Stella began working in printmaking in the mid-sixties and it would continue to be an important part of his practice. "Aluminum Series" is one of the most desirable groups of prints that Stella created. They can be found in the permanent collection of the Whitney, the Walker Arts Center, the National Gallery of Australia and the Brooklyn Museum to mention a few.
