Brice Marden

Brice Marden (born 1938) first incorporated gesture in his paintings and drawings in the mid-1980s. Inspired by Chinese calligraphy, the wandering lines were a departure from the planes of color that had characterized his prior work. In recent years the monochrome has returned, but in a different form, subtly altered by the artist’s ongoing engagement with gesture. This catalogue presents Marden’s first new body of work since 2012. It includes 12 paintings― calligraphic and monochrome, with multiple panels and single panels―and 43 drawings, all illustrated in full color. Photographs of his studios in Tivoli and Nevis offer a view of his tools and techniques, while a conversation with painter Matt Connors sheds light on Marden’s continuing evolution and influence.
