I think Robert Mangold is a good artist to kick off with. Let’s start out as we mean to go on.
His work is direct and succinct. It is efficient without being austere, neat without being clinical.
Mangold does painting as form and colour. There is no pomp or flab. He uses the traditional materials of a painter to make paintings that are about the essential. His palette is neither showy nor dispassionate but perfectly pitched; colour combines with form impeccably and the result is something both visually and intellectually satisfying… well done Robert.
