This work's geometric pattern and colorful design is representative of Frank Stella's minimalist style, as well as his consistent engagement with printmaking as a process. Stella first became interested in printmaking in the mid-1960s, while working alongside master printer Kenneth Tyler at Gemini G.E.L. By 1973, he had a print studio installed in his New York house.

Frank Stella has been recognized for his innovations in art since the age of 25, when he cast aside the concept of creating illusionistic space in art in favor of the physicality of a flat surface. Perhaps best known for his deviation from the traditional rectangular canvas, Stella's colorful works frequently feature geometric designs and colorful patterns.

Though initially focused on painting and printmaking processes, in the late 1960s, Stella teamed up with Merce Cunningham Dance in designing the set and costumes for the modern dance piece Scramble. Around this time he also began to incorporate three-dimensional elements into his otherwise flat works; first by introducing relief and eventually transgressing into complete sculptures by the mid-1990s.

Stella's work has been included in several important exhibitions that defined 1960s art, among them the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum's The Shaped Canvas (1964—65) and Systemic Painting (1966). His art has also been the subject of several retrospectives in museums and galleries across the United States, Europe, and Japan. The artist continues to live and work in New York.Read Less
