Description - Brice Marden by Paul Hills

Brice Marden has furthered the traditions of abstraction with his exploration of surface, material, and color, from his early monochromatic work to his more recent calligraphic compositions. In this body of work, Marden has turned his attention again to the qualities of monochrome, exploring the possibilities of terre verte (green earth), an iron silicate/clay pigment, which came into use during the Renaissance. The catalogue highlights ten new, identically sized paintings measuring eight by six feet, employing ten different brands of terre verte oil paint in order to explore variations in hue and chromatic nuances.
