Mel Bochner Art For Sale
Mel Bochner is a Contemporary Artist who was born in Pittsburgh, PA in 1940. Mel Bochner studied fine art at Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Art in 1962. After graduating, Mel Bochner traveled to San Francisco, before settling in New York City in 1964.
During the late 1960s, like other conceptual artists, Bochner turned away from self-expression, choosing instead to explore organized systems of thought, such as language and mathematics. Bochner created art drawings in galleries that followed specific systems based on circular forms and on the measurements of the gallery space. For his Measurement series, Bochner used black tape and Letraset to create line drawings accompanied by measurements directly on to walls, effectively making large-scale diagrams of the rooms in which they were installed. Mel Bochner also used sculptural pieces to explore the basic properties of measurement, weight, and gravity.
