Lost in Form, Found in Line: An Exhibition of Works by Robert Motherwell
Johnson, Mark M.
Arts & Activities, v146 n2 p22-24 Oct 2009
In this article, the author profiles Robert Motherwell (1915-1991) who is universally regarded as one of the most important painters and printmakers of the mid-20th century, and was a prominent figure in the movement known as Abstract Expressionism. The author also discusses the exhibition, "Lost in Form, Found in Line: An Exhibition of Works by Robert Motherwell," which documents Motherwell's use of paper, particularly for prints, and explores the artist's working process and the spirit that existed in the environs of his studio and in the print workshops. Line and form are the motifs of this presentation. The viewer of the exhibition is continually engaged in a visual journey through line and form, the same process used by the artist. The exhibition was organized by the Jerald Melberg Gallery, Inc. and was curated by Michael Mahnke of the Dedalus Foundation, an organization created by Motherwell to foster an understanding of Modern Art and modernism through research, education, publications and exhibitions in the field.
