Stanley Whitney provides an intimate and overreaching look at the artist’s work from 1978 to 2015. The publication weaves together graphite drawings, gouaches, and small and large-scale paintings, with color photographs of the artist’s studio dispersed throughout. Drawing from his African-American heritage, Old masters and Abstract Expressionism, White produces abstract works of structured dissonance that transition from the gestural to the refined over time.
