Frank Stella said that one of his most recent objectives has been to “build a painting rather than painting a painting.” A quintet of ambitious new works—which were wheeled into Manhattan on double-wide flatbed trucks—realize this idea, extending the minimalist master’s recognizable forms even further into three dimensions, where they seem to float in anti-gravity. He builds them with computer models before 3D-printing small sculptural maquettes that are sent to fabricators in the Netherlands and Belgium, where they’re engineered and constructed using technology derived from shipbuilding and coated with automotive paint.
