Robert Mangold

An iconic Minimalist, Robert Mangold is a past master at using colors and forms in unexpected ways, fusing differently shaped canvases and drawn shapes to create new, formalist structures. In his paintings, he strives to employ color relationships to forge an anonymous and featureless mood. Drawn to less "aggressive" and "dynamic" tonal relationships in color, Mangold uses a straightforward and non-referential perspective but often draws on the particular, channeling everything from manila envelopes to the negative spaces in New York City architecture.
