The exhibition will include a range of geometric and organic abstract paintings made between 1958-1991, as well as over twenty unique lithographs from 1949-1950.
Our fifth VIEWLIST exhibition is conceived by MINUS SPACE assistant Bryan Granger.
With his work, Ted Stamm draws as much from a Minimalist, hard-edge legacy as it does from the randomness and arbitrariness of his own life. Seeing as Stamm sought to “eliminate any physical boundary in time or space” between his life and his work, we must look at the two as inseparable. His sleek manipulations of baseball diamonds and high-speed trains offer a glimpse into some of his passions, and his Wooster paintings preserve specific spatial memories from his time in New York.
