A current exhibition of work from the 1980s by Robert Mangold brings together paintings from his X, + and Frame series, the common theme being the relationship between figure and surface. Mathematical operations are the focus of the X and + series, where mathematical relationships determine the precise manner in which the canvases of varying sizes are laid out and abutted to create a whole. The Frame series is made up of paintings formed by three or four canvases connected to create a framework.
Artist: Robert Mangold
The exhibition runs through May 8, 2009 at Parasol Unit in London.
