WORK IN PROGRESS, MARYLYN DINTENFASS
MISSISSIPPI MUSEUM OF ART
July 22 – October 15 2006
Supported by the Andy Warhol foundation for the Visual Arts
“I have been involved with the grid for more than thirty years,” says Marylyn Dintenfass, a New York artists- born and bred- who came of age in that city in the defiantly vibrant decade of the 1960’s. Studying initially with Abstract Expressionist painter John Ferren and muralist Barse Miller, Dintenfass began her professional life in the midst of artists like Larry Poons and Frank Stella. She found herself engaged by the possibilities of the grid at a time when artists, from Mark Rothko to Andy Warhol, seemed to be exploring its formal, psychological, and conceptual ramifications.
