Monograph on the work of Frank Stella. Edited by Ben Tufnell with essays by Robert Hobbs, Tom Hunt, Karen Wilken, et al. "The art of Frank Stella (born 1936) transcends the boundaries between painting, sculpture and architecture. Over the course of a five-decade career the artist has consistently reinvented himself, to such an extent that today we are faced with seven or eight Stellas, ranging from austere minimalist to baroque maximalist. Frank Stella: Connections carefully orchestrates a selection of paintings and sculptures to reveal a surprisingly unified Stella. Included are previously unseen early Minimalist works and “turning points” from the artist’s personal collection, as well as selections from such major series as the Irregular Polygons and Protractor paintings of the 1960s, the Polish Village and Circuits series of the 1970s and 1980s, and the metal reliefs and monumental floor sculptures of the last two decades. Through a series of encounters, juxtapositions and dialogues, the underlying concerns and extraordinary consistency of Stella’s practice are here brought to light." -- publisher's statement.
