Finally got time to get back on creative productions. Since years I write down short haiku poems inspired by travels and pics taken in special places or occasions. I'm gonna publish some of them on this renovated blog.
Frank Stella’s Black Series II is a portfolio of eight lithographs. They were published by Gemini G.E.L in an edition of one hundred. The lithographs transpose the compositions of Stella’s diamond-pattern Black Paintings (1959-1960) into prints.
Stella gave them the same names as the paintings they were based upon: Tuxedo Park, Gezira, Point of Pines, Zambesi, Jill, Delphine and Hippolyte, Gavotte and Turkish Mambo. The Black Series I of the same year similarly assembled twelve of his Black Paintings with rectilinear compositions. The Black Paintings (1959-1960) are Stella’s most important and radical contribution to post-war abstract painting, only rivalled by the shaped canvases executed in aluminium and copper paint between 1960 and 1961.
Nick Frank, Sony World Photo Awards Finalist of 2014, is an architectural photographer from Munich Germany who depicts the world through his camera creating solid compositions of architectural urban and industrial environments. His latest projects caught our attention. His focus on urban details, subways, colors and schemes let us include his works in our definition of abstract structuralism.
