For Carl Andre
ARTIST Brice Marden (born 1938)
DATE1966, repainted 1969-1970 6park.comFor Carl Andre is a tribute to Marden’s friend, the Minimalist artist Carl Andre. Andre made sculptures using metal plates that sit directly on the floor and can be stepped on, as pictured in the photograph below. In this “portrait” of the artist, Marden’s metallic gray square refers to his friend’s sculptures instead of his physical appearance.
While some artists use paint to create the illusion of an object, Marden uses the medium to remind viewers that they are already looking at an object: a painted canvas. Unlike other abstract artists, such as Helen Frankenthaler, whose work is featured nearby, Marden avoids all identifiable and expressive marks, ensuring that the surface remains the only subject of the painting. In this way, his painting is an homage to Andre’s work, rather than a realistic portrait.
ARTIST Felix Gonzalez-Torres (1957 - 1996)
You are invited to take a piece of candy. Made of an everyday, non-art material, “Untitled” (L.A.) is designed to suggest a wide range of meanings. Unlike most works of art, this one invites you to touch, taste, and actively engage. 6park.com
A Cuban-born American citizen, Gonzalez-Torres moved to New York City in the early 1980s, where he joined the artist collaborative Group Material. Using materials like candy, lightbulbs, and paper, he invited renewed attention to the objects in our everyday lives. 6park.com
In Los Angeles in 1991—the same year he created “Untitled” (L.A.)—Gonzalez-Torres’s longtime partner Ross Laycock died of complications from AIDS. Given this fact, the artist’s candy spills have often been interpreted as metaphors for the human body ravaged by illness. As the candy pile depletes, so too did Laycock’s diseased body. By providing for the endless replenishment of the candy, the artist symbolically grants the body everlasting life. Gonzalez-Torres himself avoided assigning definite meanings, choosing instead to keep his work open-ended. 6park.com
