Frank Stella Shards Series, 1982, is comprised of five lithographs and four variants. Frank Stella created these works using the leftover elements of his earlier Circuits Series prints and paintings as well as his Polar Coordinates for Ronnie Peterson, 1980 series. The fascinating grid systems that make up the backdrop of Shards were adapted from the plates of Polar Coordinates, and the various french curves and undulating lines echo the forms seen in Circuits. The use of 'shards' of previous works to create a series in its own right would become an increasingly employed technique for Stella, and here we can see why. There is a magnificent richness of texture and an immense depth in the prints, showcasing Stella's creative force.
