Marianne Boesky Gallery is pleased to present Ted Stamm: Paintings, a survey of works from 1973 to 1981 by the late New York City-based painter. This is the second exhibition of the artist’s work at the gallery. Prior to Stamm’s unexpected death in 1984 at the age of 40, the artist created a substantial mature body of work that was at once responsive to the past, reflective of his time, and telling of the future. Stamm’s practice was dedicated to complicating a Minimalist vocabulary with elongations suggestive of speed and the appearances of movement.
In 1986 David Robbins produced Talent, a photowork comprised of eighteen black-and-white headshots. He invited a coterie of artist friends associated with Gallery Nature Morte and early Metro Pictures to have their portrait taken on 46th Street by a studio photographer, James Kriegsmann. Twenty-five years later, Michelle Grabner brings them back together.

From the 1950’s to the present these artists have stripped, ripped, twisted, draped, stretched and stitched the canvas to create works that push the definition of painting. For over a century the notion of materiality has intrigued philosophers – debating the hierarchy of form over substance and vice versa. […]

The paintings of Jon Pestoni and Zak Prekop have clear affinities – their separate practices arise from a conceptual foundation, but are executed with intellectual playfulness, subtlety, lightness and lyricism. Both […]
