Fred Sandback | Untitled
1979 | Lithograph on Japanese paper with cut edge | 9.5” x 9.5”
At 9.5 inches square, this untitled work by the famed minimalist artist, Fred Sandback sets the ground with a bold orange color field. Three sharp lines delineate the corner of a room. Referencing Sandback’s sculptural work, with its distinguishing attentiveness to architectural space and economical line, this striking lithographic print on Japanese paper uses an opposing strategy of scale to engage the viewer.
Fred Sandback (1943-2003) exhibited internationally from 1968 when his first solo shows were held at Galerie Konrad Fischer, Düsseldorf, and Galerie Heiner Friedrich, Munich, while the artist was still a graduate student pursuing his MFA at the Yale School of Art and Architecture. The Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, Vaduz, organized an extensive survey in 2005, shown at the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, and the Neue Galerie am Joanneum, Graz, in 2006. In 2011, his work was featured in a solo exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery, London, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver dedicated its entire building to a solo exhibition. In 2014, the Kunstmuseum Winterthur, Switzerland hosted a major retrospective of his drawings that traveled to the Josef Albers Museum, Bottrop and Museum Wiesbaden, Germany. Numerous publications have been published on Sandback’s work including the most recent book: Aspects: Fred Sandback’s Sculpture by Edward A. Vazquez (2017). Sandback’s sculpture is represented in numerous museum collections internationally and is on permanent view at Dia:Beacon, New York. His estate is represented by David Zwirner, New York/London and a complete exhibition history and bibliography is available online at www.fredsandbackarchive.org.
