“Robert Mangold: Drawings and Works on Paper 1965-2008,” Pace, Wildenstein, New York, NY. Through April 4.
Holland Cotter reports:
“Taken in isolation, none of these abstract forms are particularly gripping. But when they�re arranged together, salon style, across the gallery wall, as they are at PaceWildenstein, their invention and variety are a thrill. Possibly, scale is again a factor: when concentrated down to the dimensions of drawings or prints, Mr. Mangold�s color and line have unsuspected vivacity and depth, at least on the evidence of this show, which has sent me back to his paintings with an involved eye.”
Mangold also has a solo show in London at Parasol Unit through May 8. The exhibition concentrates on three dynamic groups of painting that Mangold executed between 1980 and 1986, entitled “X, Plus and Frame Painting” series.
