Our upcoming gallery opening on December 10th, “Sculptured and 3-D Paper” features work by several blue-chip contemporary artists. The piece on the invitation “The Carriage Trade” (2015) is a new work by Red Grooms.
“The Carriage Trade” is a three-dimensional lithograph. In this piece Grooms once again casts his acute eye on life in New York City. He captures an autumn scene with a row of colorful carriage houses. “The Carriage Trade” has been printed in 14 colors from 13 aluminum plates, hand-drawn and painted by Red Grooms.
This 3-D lithograph has been cut, scored, folded and assembled by hand.
Red Grooms is an American multimedia artist best known for his colorful pop-art constructions depicting scenes of modern urban life. He played a major role in The New American Wave of the 1960’s that includes Warhol, Johns, Rauschenberg, Oldenburg, Lichtenstein and Stella.
Grooms is represented in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Brooklyn Museum, and, of course, The Denver Art Museum. His iconic sculpture “The Shot-Out” is located outside of The Duncan Pavilion on level two of the North Building.
We are also honored to feature in this exhibition 3-dimensional paper pieces by Jane Hammond, Enrique Chagoya, Ana Maria Hernando and other museum-track artists.
