About The Work

Noland's work, regardless of medium, is characterized by a commitment to geometric abstraction and a dedication to using both bold, saturated colors and pale phantom ones. His most iconic works feature re-occurring forms, most notably concentric circles, patterned stripes, grids and diamonds.

In 1967 Noland began a series of horizontal striped paintings, foregoing his previous asymmetrical, circular, and irregularly shaped canvases in favor of a rectangular-shaped canvas. This neutral-shaped canvas was chosen to emphasis color as the only subject matter. With only these bold stripes of color, Noland creates a sense of dynamic movement and undulation of the bands. 

'Twin Planes' is a striking example of Noland's 60's minimalist aesthetic using his signature horizontal stripes.  The picture plane is several times larger in length than the height, creating an affect to almost envelop the viewer. In signature Noland style, this work is composed of alternating bands of pure color with raw canvas exposed between the bands. Toned-down stripes of steel blue and copper cover most of the vertical bandwidth, while lush rose pink and emerald green burst with vibrance from the bottom of the canvas.
