Frank Stella: The Good, The Bad & The Baroque

Image coming soon.

John Bunker reflects on the daring nature of Frank Stella's oeuvre.

Bunker notes: "Stella started his career by examining the architecture of a painting as object. He makes the image and the object one….This is a guy who knows what Modernism is with a capital M! He is not an artist of touch, of painterliness. His career has been about how to find a truly modern space; it is abstract for sure, but it reflects us, refracts us- our desires, our alienated angst- just as Manet did in 'A Bar at the Folies- Bergere' one hundred and fifty years before."

Frank Stella: Connections is on view at Haunch of Venison, London through November 19, 2011.
