Mixografia is pleased to announce Materiality, an exhibition of artworks by Louise Bourgeois, Helen Frankenthaler, Lynda Benglis, Analia Saban, and Rachel Whiteread. The exhibition considers artists who use material not only as a means to create, but also as a conceptual foundation of their bodies of work.

Crochet, a series by Louise Bourgeois from 1998, combines her lifelong fascination with embroidery and printmaking. She depicts a piece of cotton thread in various entangled arrangements.

In Color Echoes, a series of monoprints by Lynda Benglis, she builds compositions with a combination of organic forms and watercolor washes. Each uniquely hand colored print stands in a vertical orientation, using unconventional materials such as polyurethane foam to create the basis for the protruding forms.

In Helen Frankenthaler’s monumental and stoic prints, made in collaboration with Mixografia over the course of three years, she worked with a range of materials from wax to plaster, allowing her physical interaction with the materials to let the images come forth.

Analia Saban furthers her career-long examination into the physical qualities of common objects, such as a cotton hand towel or sidewalk concrete. In her series of plastic bag prints, each bag is printed with a different design that varies on the theme of “Thank You, Have a Nice Day”, a slogan which has become integral and iconic to the imagery of the disposable plastic shopping bag.

In Squashed by Rachel Whiteread, she depicts two sides of a flattened and worn metal can. The compressed object suggests a shell without substance, something meant to contain space stripped of that fundamental element.
