Stanley Whitney has been exploring the formal possibilities of colour within ever-shifting grids of multi-hued blocks and all-over fields of gestural marks and passages, since the mid-1970s.
His exhibition at Lisson Gallery, New York (September – October 2017) is the first major presentation of his drawings, highlighting important works from 1989 to the present.
Whitney’s works on paper are a critical component of his practice, in which he develops his spatial structure and experiments with the placement of colour. This publication is a facsimile of one of the artist’s sketchbooks.
An intimate look at the artist's working method and process, this is a facsimile of one of Stanley Whitney’s Moleskine Cahier sketchbooks and has never been seen before. The original sketchbook was exhibited in a vitrine within the show.
