Frank Stella (born May 12, 1936) is an American painter and printmaker,
noted for his work in the areas of minimalism and post-painterly abstraction.
My painting is based on the fact that only what can be seen there is there. It really is an object. Any painting is an object and anyone who gets involved enough in this finally has to face up to the objectness of whatever it is that he’s doing. He is making a thing.. ..all I want anyone to get out of my paintings, and all I ever get out of them, is the fact that you can see the whole idea without any confusion.. .What you see is what you see. — Frank Stella
