Internationally renowned sculptor Joel Shapiro investigates the nature of abstraction in post-minimal fashion. His weighty geometric abstractions relate to the figure, but appear to be more concerned with addressing formal and structural issues. In the print series on view Shapiro uses his iconic vocabulary to create expressive compilations of vibrant colors and dynamic forms. In his sculpture, Shapiro brings three dimensionality to abstract constructions. In Maquettes and Multiples, these painted wood, small scale versions of monumental sculpture extend out from the wall towards the center of the room energizing and transforming the space.

The exhibition at the Elizabeth Leach Gallery complements Joel Shapiro’s installation at the Portland Art Museum. The museum’s exhibition is part of its Contemporary Art Series and will be on view June 21 - September 21, 2014.

Shapiro’s work can be found in numerous public collections world wide including: the Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York, NY), the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, NY), the Tate Gallery (London, England) and the Musée national d’art moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris, France). Shapiro has had over 160 solo exhibitions and retrospectives and executed numerous public commissions internationally. He has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and was awarded the Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2005.
