Summary

A beautifully illustrated volume that explores Brice Marden’s history of painting on marble fragments sourced from quarries in Hydra, Greece.

In 1981, while summering on the island of Hydra, Greece, Brice Marden began painting on small fragments of marble from local quarries. These compositions marked a transitional moment in his career. Marden has continued to make marble paintings since that time, describing his strategy as “taking an accident and turning it into a form.”
 
This volume commemorates an exhibition of the artist’s marble paintings presented at Gagosian, Athens, in 2020—his first solo exhibition in Greece in four decades. To complement the marbles, Marden selected a small group of ink drawings on paper and a six-panel painting, Free Painting 3 (2017). Together with full views and details of individual works, this beautifully illustrated volume features installation photography and a new essay by Dimitrios Antonitsis, in English and Greek, that considers the marble paintings in the context of the artist’s long connection to Hydra.
