Frank Stella (b. 1936 in Malden, Mass.) is one of the main exponents of Hard-Edge Painting. He quickly extricated himself from Abstract Expressionism to contemplate the basic characteristics of painting: form, surface and colour. From 1948 he was making his large scale Black Paintings, followed by his Shaped Canvasses. After his first retrospective (1970, Museum of Modern Art, New York) a radical change of style and technique took place. Through the medium of relief his works began to protrude into space. Since 1975 he has made coloured aluminum picture-objects. This tendency towards three-dimensionality was reinforced in the 1990s by his architecture projects and monumental metal sculptures.
