Further information
Larry Poons' paintings from the 1960s consist of optical arrangements of dots and ellipses that float against monochromatic backgrounds. Here, the formal elements were determined by plotting points on a gridded matrix according to predetermined mathematical principles. By establishing rules that generated each painting, Poons marked a development in the history of painting shared by his longtime friend and close collaborator Frank Stella.
