About The Work

This evocative work is composed of alternating bands of pastel colors with paper pulp exposed between the bands. Here, Noland challenges the strict geometric lines that defined his minimalist 60's band compositions, overwhelming the structure with color shifts and rugged deckled edges. The Miami-esque pastel palette appears sponged onto the tiers with intentional distressing and flecks of darker/contrasting colors overtop for added texture. Shades of mauve, lavender, peach, sea-foam green, and turquoise and baby blues shift into and out of each other within the vertically layered bands. 

Noland's striped bands are some of the most iconic and desirable works within the 20th century art canon. This piece is a fine example of one of Noland's creations, and a demonstration of his ingenuity and unique style as a printmaker.
