Albers and Morandi

Never Finished

A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say. —Italo Calvino

 

David Zwirner is pleased to present Albers and Morandi: Never Finished, curated by gallery Partner David Leiber. On view at the gallery’s 537 West 20th Street location, the exhibition explores the formal and visual affinities and contrasts between two of the twentieth century’s greatest painters: Josef Albers (1888–1976) and Giorgio Morandi (1890–1964).

Both Albers and Morandi are best known for their decades-long elaborations of singular motifs: from 1950 until his death in 1976, Albers employed his nested square format to experiment with endless chromatic combinations and perceptual effects, while Morandi, in his intimate still lifes and occasional landscapes, engaged viewers’ perceptual understanding and memory of everyday objects and spaces.

“Each was the real thing: diligent, serious, and, at the same time, poetic and lyrical. Each deliberately established limitations for his art, confining the vocabulary and regulating the format, and then extracted the maximum … toward a truly spiritual beauty.”

“Morandi’s statement that nothing is more abstract than reality overshadows … an almost scientific research and observation of color and light relationships.… Just like Morandi, Albers came to his identity indirectly. In these long series of parallel squares … Albers looked into what he referred to as ‘interaction of color.’”

“One could be knowledgeable about color, but one could not always predict what would happen.… Every painting would be an experiment.”

—Jeannette Redensek, “Farbenfabeln: On the Origins and Development of the Homage to the Square,” in Josef Albers: Interaction, Villa Hügel, Essen, 2018

“There is no color tone or scrap of line that Albers did not see as full of latent meaning.… Calmly and systematically receptive, like Morandi looking at bottles, he found multitude and stability in a few forms.”

“Through an admixture of visual grammar and language his pictures reveal startling insights: What happens when gracefulness is juxtaposed against awkwardness? Is human ineptitude thereby understood, tolerated, or ennobled? He juggles disproportionate but equal things and develops exquisite tensions.”
