The eight recent sculptures from Frank Stella’s (b. 1936) Scarlatti Kirkpatrick Series—swirling, multicolored polychrome forms with coiled steel tubing armatures—are dynamic evocations of the colorful sounds and rhythms of Domenico Scarlatti’s harpsichord sonatas.
The Coronation is a three-channel video with sound, projected on three 52-inch plasma monitors. Wall-mounted and arranged like a triptych, the work alters the architecture of the gallery and establishes a visual dialogue with Georges Rouault's Tragic Landscape, 1930, from the permanent collection.
Flurries is composed of small, sculptural pieces randomly mounted on the windows and walls of the Vradenburg Café. Cast in urethane, a clear synthetic material, in the shape of "cap"-in mathematics, the area of a sphere above or below a given plane-the pieces are arranged in the space to induce a visual progression from order to disorder.
