Featured Artwork: Frank Stella, Nogaro, 1982
Over the course of his career Frank Stella’s work became increasingly volumetric, and by the 1980s, he had completely abandoned the austere flatness of his early canvases. Nogaro
is from Stella’s Circuit series (1980–84), twenty-two wall-mounted paintings all named for cities with automobile racetracks. These dynamic, curvilinear constructions reveal the loose approach to form that Stella achieved late in his career and epitomize his deft handling of three-dimensional space. All references to the traditional picture plane have been eliminated, allowing the wall to become the frame that contains the “painting.”
To take you to the finish line, a tasty lunch awaits featuring chicken purses with roasted red pepper cream, roasted vegetables, and a whole wheat roll and butter. For dessert, how about caramel almond tart with rum-laced cinnamon cream?!
