Spanierman Modern is pleased to announce the opening on January 19, 2012 of Stanley Boxer (1926–2000). An artist whose work is in numerous museum collections in America and abroad, Boxer worked with indefatigable energy during a career that spanned the second half of the twentieth century. In his paintings from the 1960s through the 1990s—featured in this exhibition—he developed an individualistic stylistic trajectory, drawing from the action painting techniques of Abstract Expressionism and the optical color sensations and allover approach of Color Field painting, as well as from painterly traditions stretching back to the old masters. His passion for surface vibrancy is demonstrated in his sensuous, richly textured canvases and the exuberant works he created in the 1990s, in which he blended oil paint with a range of unusual materials.
