PRESS RELEASEFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Madelyn Jordon Fine Art is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings and selected prints by the renowned abstract painter STANLEY BOXER. The artist, who enjoyed a highly productive artistic career spanning over four decades,until his death in 2000, is known primarily for thick impastoed color-field abstractions. He is represented in numerous major museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
The paintings in the exhibition, all mixed media on canvas, are drawn principally from the last decade of the artist's life, from the late 80's through the 1990's. In these works, Boxer, a superb manipulator of surfaces, combines such diverse materials as seeds, pebbles, string, glitter and roofing shingles with generous quantities of paint to create riotous melanges of texture and color. His exuberant surfaces animate the surfaces and delight the eye.
In 1979, Boxer created "Carnival of Animals" at Tyler Graphics, a suite of fourteen etchings, inspired by the musical by Saint-Saens in 1886. Five intaglios from this rare portfolio will be on view, showing the artist's extraordinary talent in another medium.
The exhibition will continue through November 27, 2005. For further information, contact Madelyn Jordon at the gallery.
