Stanley Whitney: Sketchbook


Featured image is a spread from 'Stanley Whitney: Sketchbook.'

A longstanding and beloved icon of contemporary painting in New York, Stanley Whitney (born 1946) has been exploring the formal possibilities of color within ever-shifting grids of multihued blocks and all-over fields of gestural marks and passages, since the mid-1970s. Whitney’s works on paper and preparatory sketchbooks are a critical component of his practice, in which he develops his spatial structure and experiments with the placement of color. Whitney has noted: “For me, drawing is a way to understand where things are in space. I felt that I needed to work on space because I didn’t want my color to be decorative. I wanted color to have real intellect.” Sketchbook is a precise facsimile of one of the artist’s Moleskine notebooks, featuring his notes, sketches and color investigations for recent paintings.

An artist's sketchbook is a wonderful thing. This spread from Lisson Gallery's new facsimile of one of Stanley Whitney's Moleskine notebooks shows a color study for a related painting. Other pages contain notes and ideas—often seen later in the titles of his paintings—that read like lines of poetry. One page reads, on four lines, "The Red, Blue Lovesong, Depth of Blue, Blue Depth." Others read, "Birdcalls," "For Joy and Grief," "Nation Time," and "The Tiger's Going to Roar Tonight." Get the book at our booth at Freize New York, on view through May 6. Also available, a signed and numbered Stanley Whitney Limited Edition of 10 copies of Artist|Work|Lisson with hand-drawn front and back covers. (See here.) continue to blog
