Stanley Whitney has experimented for decades with a single compositional strategy rendering grids with seemingly inexhaustible variations of color. He has described his process as similar to the call and response flow of traditional African-American music, with one color calling forth another and dictating the structure of the work. Whitney draws inspiration from a wide range of historical and cultural references including Roman architecture, American quilt making, and jazz, which he listens to while working in the studio. Stanley Whitney has been making monotypes and editions at Two Palms since 2016. His monotypes can be found in the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
