C Type (1968), Frank Stella.
Acrylic on canvas
There were few paintings present in this exhibition, but this one by Frank Stella fit right in. The layout and proportions of the angular stripes are produced to have similar characteristics of minimalism. Stella maps the importance of dimension on this canvas.
Shadow Painting 4 (1968), Gerhard Richter.
Oil on canvas
I was surprised to see Richter’s painting in this exhibition because of his previous paintings I am familiar with. Richter is better known for his photorealism and abstraction in his art, but it was intriguing to learn that he made these types of paintings in the 60s-70s. Richter paints and the viewer considers the illusionistic space. The oil paint is very successful on the canvas + monochromatic colors (seen through the shadows also).
