The terse and precisely-crafted paintings of artist Mary Corse are based on the movements of the 1960s, Minimalism, monochrome painting and ‘Light and Space.’ For the painting, Corse arranged black squares vertically, upon which a vertical structure of short lines unfolds, barely visible to the eye. A rigorously reduced painting that seems to unfold a kind of light-like materiality in visual proximity to the works of Anni Albers, Silke Radenhausen and others. Corse first gained recognition as one of the few women associated with the Southern California ‘Light and Space’ movement in the mid-1960s. Corse’s paintings obsessively engage with perception and embody rather than merely represent light. Corse combines a philosophical search for the representation of infinity with methodological accuracy.
