Amon Carter Museum-Between the Lines: Gego as Printmaker
Exhibition: February 7, 2017 - August 6, 2017
From zigzags and curves to diagonals and scribbles, this small exhibition of
prints by abstract artist Gego (1912-1994) celebrates the vibrant diversity of
line. While primarily known as a kinetic sculptor, Gego explored the printing
process's potential for creating intricate linear patterns while working at the
Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles in 1966. Drawn from the Amon
Carter's collection, these richly saturated lithographs reflect Gego's interest
in the intersection between line and space. Her choice of dramatic blacks and reds,
contrasted with the lightly colored paper sheet, highlights the images generated
by negative space, or what Gego called, "the nothing between the lines."
