Robert Mangold: New Paintings and Works on Paper, The Ring Series

In his eighth exhibition at Lisson Gallery since his first show here in 1973, Robert Mangold presents a selection of new paintings and works on paper made this year.

Mangold seeks an equilibrium between the recurring elements in his work: simple geometric forms, coloured with hand-made tints, and often curvilinear lines hand-drawn within these forms. The works are deceptively simple and 'minimalist', demonstrating a seemingly infinite variety of invention and nuance within self-imposed geometric constraints.

Mangold almost always works in extensive series, often carried through both paintings and works on paper. Here he presents examples from his most recent 'Ring' series, each a kind of visual conundrum in which linear figures establish their formal presence within the infinite space of the ring-shaped ground.
