This year at @friezeartfair #NewYork we will present a display with a special focus on prints and metal cut-outs by pioneer of the #PopArt movement, @tom_wesselmann (1931 - 2004), which have come directly from the #TomWesselmann Estate.
Through the mediums of painting, sculpture and #print, Wesselmann consistently reinterpreted the subject matter of still life, #nude, and landscape, throughout his lifetime. In 1984 he began to make three-dimensional images in cut #metal. He enlarged small doodles, cut them out of steel and aluminium and painted them in vivid colours. These new #drawings, which includes, ‘Sitting Nude Editions’, 1987, (pictured) were composed of solid shapes and interior voids, becoming the ideal medium for adapting the clean lines and flattened forms of his earlier paintings. The #cutout steel editions will be shown alongside screenprints and etchings, some featuring Wesselmann’s longtime studio assistant and model, Monica Serra, and a unique painting on card, ‘Study for House and Barn in Distance’, 1991.
Find us on booth B46. Opens 5 – 7 May 2017. #FriezeNewYork
