I have chosen to look into the work of Frank Stella because of the unique shaped canvases he uses in his paintings. Stella creates giant paintings on shaped canvases. In relation to the shaped painting material project i feel he is a good example to look at to gain ideas. I really like the way Stella uses colour, pattern and line in his work to give the shapes a more 3 dimensional look to them. Here are examples of his work that i was particularly drawn to.
