Stanley Boxer: Gradations

Berry Campbell Gallery is pleased to announce the special exhibition “STANLEY BOXER: GRADATIONS” from April 19 through May 19, 2018. Berry Campbell will present a curated selection of paintings from 1976 to 1984 that have been described by Karen Wilkin as “at once lyrical and brutal, aggressively physical and ineffably elusive.” This is Berry Campbell’s second solo exhibition of Stanley Boxer. The opening reception for “Stanley Boxer: Gradations” is Thursday, April 19 from 6 to 8pm.

Throughout his four-decade-long career, Stanley Boxer (1926–2000) broke through the barriers that often divided the artists of his day. In the 1960s, he was deemed a Color Field painter, but at the time he was already moving toward the material specificity of process art, building dense surfaces with unexpected additives, such as sand, glitter, sawdust, wood shavings, and dressmaker’s beads. However, Boxer stopped short of letting his materials speak for themselves. More interested in the end result than in his process or materials, in his art, he expressed his love for intense optical he sought to create new forms that could excite the eye.

Boxer found a common ground among the competing ideologies of his time, while maintaining his distinctive artistic identity. His paintings, sculptures, and collages can be linked to contemporary currents, but throughout he maintained a commitment to creating surfaces characterized by intense radiance and nuance, designed with “a kind of choreography of material,” as described in Arts Magazine by Judith Van Baron in 1974.
