About Stanley Boxer

Stanley Boxer devoted nearly five decades to the development of an expressive, abstract practice, encompassing drawing, sculpture, and printmaking. “In the manufacture of my art, I use anything and everything that gets the job done without any sentiment or sanctity as to medium,” he once said. While best known for his thickly brushed canvases that engage the material qualities of paint, he began his career as a figurative painter and draughtsman. Throughout the 1960s, Boxer was often associated with the Color Field painters and, for a period, used dense planes of color as the governing center of his work. He later moved beyond these concerns, however, towards an examination of paint itself.
