May 20 – June 30, 2021

Press Release

Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art is pleased to present an exhibition of ten circular prints from Frank Stella’s celebrated “Imaginary Places” series. The selected works on view are from 1996 - 1998 and are rendered in vivid - often fluorescent - colors. Stella employs a variety of techniques in this series, including engraving, aquatint, relief, lithography, screenprint, etching, and computer design. The labor-intensive, complex prints each refer to an encyclopedic entry in Alberto Manguel and Gianni Guadalupi’s The Dictionary of Imaginary Places. The book catalogues the geography and culture of fictional places from literature, and offered an ideal source material for Stella’s abstracted worlds.
