Joel Shapiro: Untitled, 1979
43 x 37 in. / 109.2 x 94 cm.
Edition of 40 (with 10 Artist Proofs)
Joel Shapiro is a sculptor whose work hovers between abstraction and figuration. He most often uses plain rectangular forms that are suggestive of motion and characterization. However, in his earlier prints and drawings the artist also engaged more gestural mark-making, organic shapes and bright color fields.
