"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
From "Art in the Twenty-First Century" Season 6 (2012)

Artist Robert Mangold, from his country studio in upstate New York, translates the most basic of formal elements—shape, line, and color—into paintings, prints, and drawings whose simplicity of form expresses complex ideas. On a much larger scale, Mangold creates a permanent installation of tall, colored glass panels at the federal courthouse in Buffalo, NY.
