Van Doren Waxter

Stand Number E11

Frieze Masters

Regent’s Park, London

3–6 October 2019

__________
Van Doren Waxter presents a curated exhibition featuring estate and foundation works represented by Van Doren Waxter, as well as artists championed by the gallery. The stand will include works dating from the 1950 – 1990, including:

Richard Diebenkorn (1922-1993)
Harvey Quaytman (1937-2002)
Alan Shields (1944-2005)
Hedda Sterne (1910-2011)

and work by:
Lee Krasner (1908-1984)
John McLaughlin (1898-1976)
Dorothea Rockburne (b. 1932)
Anne Truitt (1921-2004)
Jack Tworkov (1900-1982)

The stand presents a resolute and focused conversation about abstraction that is highly personal and formally varied, qualities ascribed to the distinctive careers of each presented artist. The installation negotiates deliberate aspects of each artist’s work: the gesture in the cityscape-derived abstractions of Sterne and Diebenkorn; the coolly minimal and highly measured approaches of McLaughlin, Rockburne, and Truitt; the painterly mark of Tworkov; and the material and optical play in the work of Quaytman and Shields. Each artist addresses ideas about physicality and surface of the pictorial plane; surface and support play significant roles, as does a meaningful engagement with chromatic exploration and personal geometry. Including four important women artists and three generations of American abstract art – gestural abstraction, minimalism, and conceptual art – Van Doren Waxter’s Frieze Masters booth emphasizes the gallery’s committed role and engagement with American abstraction.
