Brice Marden (born 1938) first incorporated gesture in his paintings and drawings in the mid-1980s. Inspired by Chinese calligraphy, the wandering lines were a departure from the planes of color that had characterized his prior work. In recent years the monochrome has returned, but in a different form, subtly altered by the artist's ongoing engagement with gesture. This catalogue presents Marden's first new body of work since 2012. It includes 12 paintings-- calligraphic and monochrome, with multiple panels and single panels--and 43 drawings, all illustrated in full color. Photographs of his studios in Tivoli and Nevis offer a view of his tools and techniques, while a conversation with painter Matt Connors sheds light on Marden's continuing evolution and influence.
