Stanley Boxer

American (1926-2000)
"Never part of a movement or trend, though obviously steeped in the language of Modernism, the abstract painter Stanley Boxer was a superb manipulator of surfaces, intensely bonding texture and color....

Although the works could be read as landscapes, they seem to exist purely in the realm of paint: the artist sensuously exploring its physical possibilities without script or program. As Boxer joked in his titles, these canvases, more than most, do not really lend themselves to verbal exposition. They live for the eye, to which they bring deep satisfaction."
