Robert Mangold's monochromatic canvases are often discussed as a product of Minimalism, an artistic movement which favored pure geometry and materials over narrative and emotional content. However, his use of irregular geometry, warm, muted colors, and the interchange between line and edge suggests a greater interest in illusion and an internal formal order.
