DescriptionMary Corse (b. 1945)
Untitled (white inner band), 2001
Glass microspheres in acrylic on canvas
42 x 42 inches (106.7 x 106.7 cm)
Signed and dated verso: Mary Corse / 2001
Private collection, Cincinnati, Ohio.
Mary Corse's body of work is strongly influenced by her studies in psychology, her interest in quantum physics, and by the work of Op artist Josef Albers. Utilizing paint and reflective microspheres, a technique that she developed during years of experimentation, Corse overcomes what was often perceived as mutually exclusive: the Minimalist aesthetic-monochromatic, seemingly fixed and flat-and the principles behind Abstract Expressionism, particularly its focus on chance and on the artist's intention. Untitled (white inner band) from 2001 responds to changes in the position of the viewer and to the lighting conditions of its environment. However, like the White Light Grid Series of 1969, the central band of white produces a light effect that seems to pervade the work itself-corresponding to the artist's statement that the painting "exists in an abstract perceptual reality."
Estimate: $40,000 - $60,000.
