Show synopsis "Robert Mangold: Beyond the Line "celebrates the vision of an artist who has earned a distinguished place in the grand tradition of abstract painting. Marking a forthcoming exhibition at the prestigious Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo, New York, this book tracks Mangold's artistic roots and development and documents the varied series he has made during the last eight years. It also marks his important window commission for the new Federal courthouse in Buffalo, slated for completion in 2010, and designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox as part of the U.S. General Services Administration Design Excellence Program. Insightful essays and an in-depth interview with the artist afford an intimate look into Mangold's creative process, from the austere geometric paintings of the 1970s to his recent work on windows and the vibrant Ring Images he is creating today. Luxuriously packaged, each volume contains a woodcut reproduced by offset lithography, initialed and dated by the artist in the print, suitable for framing and made especially for, and available only with, this book.
