Brice Marden’s Latest Breakthrough


Brice Marden, “March” (2018 – 2019), oil on linen, 72 x 120 x 2 1/2 inches, © 2019 Brice Marden/Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York, photo: Rob McKeever (courtesy Gagosian)

While it is the convention to think of paint as a material that covers a surface, I think when it comes to Marden’s work, we might do well to think of it as a means to expose inchoate feelings marked by a tender sense of beauty and longing, and to document an extraordinarily resilient sensitivity to the thrumming pain, terror, and loneliness of being human. – John Yau
