To me Frank Stella’s works have a sound, the buzz of a vigor that characterizes the vast body of his work. He is a chameleon that is constantly reinventing himself, from minimal paintings to maximal sculpture, the latter of which is now on show at Marianne Boesky Gallery. The show pairs Stella’s bright and shiny new work against the raw jagged metal of older works from the 90s. Upon entering the gallery one is met with a work from his “K Series” explosive in every detail with the heart of the star bleeding brightly hued coils. The main gallery holds the crescendo, Stella’s Puffed Star II stands poised with commanding elegance. Adding more points to the star is this mirror look by Gareth Pugh, paired with avocado tights for just the right amount of eccentric futurism. A reflection of the exuberant spirit that swirls around me.
