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.
