Pace Prints is pleased to present an exhibition of prints by the American painter and printmaker Robert Mangold. This exhibition will feature a new series of prints entitled Framed Square with Open Center A and B, 2013, as well as historic editions, including the Attic Series from 1990 -1991. This exhibition will be held at Pace Prints, 32 East 57th Street, 3rd Floor.
To create the works present in the exhibition, Mangold has worked primarily with aquatint etching, a method in which the artist has repeatedly demonstrated his prowess. In their simplicity, his prints become infused with complex emotion. Slightly undulating fields of pale color are bisected by confident lines, creating demarcated negative spaces throughout.
Robert Mangold was born in North Tonawanda, New York in 1937. He received a BFA from Yale University in 1961, and an MFA, also from Yale, in 1963. The artist began his career in New York, where he worked as a guard at the Museum of Modern Art, and developed close friendships and working relationships with artists and theorists such as Sol LeWitt, Robert Ryman and Lucy Lippard. The artist's paintings and prints have been the subject of an extensive number of major exhibitions worldwide, including Documenta (1972, 1977, 1982); the Whitney Biennial (1979, 1983, 1985, 2004); the Venice Biennale (1993); and over one hundred solo exhibitions at locations including The Guggenheim Museum; the Stedelijk Museum; Akron Art Museum and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. He lives and works in upstate New York.
