Helen Frankenthalter: Radical Beauty
November 15, 2021 8:00 am - April 18, 2022 5:00 pm
Helen Frankenthaler is widely considered one of America’s leading abstract artists. Her works have been displayed in numerous galleries, including New York’s MoMA and the Tate Modern, London. It’s been a decade since her death, so it seems fitting that the Dulwich Picture Gallery represents her as a trailblazer of the world as it is now. Her experimental woodcuts, such as the triptych Madame Butterfly (2001), inspired the printmaking movement. Highlights on display are East and Beyond (1973), created by printing onto multiple blocks to avoid negative space, and Cameo (1980), which features an innovative layered approach to colour, where she worked surfaces with sandpaper and dentist drills to achieve different effects.
