Painter Altoon Sultan writes about the exhibition Frank Stella: Irregular Polygons at the Hood Museum, Dartmouth College.
The paintings, she writes, are "...enormous, squeezing each other and pushing up to the ceiling and down to the floor." Considering the size of the Stella paintings in relation to the gallery space Sultan poses the question "So the question becomes: what size is right for a particular work of art? Can a work be too small, perhaps the sculptures that Giacometti used to carry around in a matchbox? If it seems too large is it because it appears made for a corporate market, so we feel a bit suspicious?"
