Stella Invades The Modern: by Edward M. Stanton

Visual vocabulary

What you see, is what you see…

Purity violation

Dazzling fluorescents

Overcoming boundaries, the essence of freedom…

Florid excitement

Narrative structure

Unlikely combination of mass and strength…

Scintillating movement

Dauntingly fundamental problems

Unified, forceful and immediate.

Rigorous diagrams

All-over compositions

Massive brutality of a catastrophe.

Emotionally turbulent

Baroque forms and irrational gestures to dominate.

Rhythmic geometry

Semi-industrial atmosphere

Drab color

Unparalleled intensity

Radically reduced compositions distilled and silenced the emotional and transcendental rhetoric that inspired what you see…is what you see.

Pure visual impact

Classical order or baroque theatrics.

Visual connections between seemingly disparate series.

Psychic automatism

A state unmediated by the unconscious mind.

Frankly speaking…
undisputed authenticity.
