Lee Lozano (19301999) is one of the still lesser known and fascinating artists of the New York art scene in the 1960s and 1970s.
Having studied at the Art Institute in Chicago, Lozano went to New York in the early 1960s. She began her art career with figurative paintings and cartoon-like drawings in which she rendered various tools as sexualised hybrids, including the obscene and witty texts in some of the works. In the Tool Paintings Lozano connected the functional features of the tools with allusions to sexual exploitation, voyeurism, polymorphic sexuality, religion and violence. In her paintings of the mid-1960s Lozano engaged intensely with abstract forms, which she consistently developed out of the tool motifs. Her manipulation of the paint on the picture plane produced shimmering light effects and often imbued the minimalist compositions with an illusionist quality. These works finally lead to the large format Wave Series-paintings on which she worked between 1969 and 1970. These 11 paintings were each produced in a single conceptually planned performative act of painting. The number and formation of the waves on the picture surface adhered to mathematical formulae, which the artist herself developed. Lozano also designed a specific exhibition situation for her Wave Series: propped up against the wall in a black room, they were to be lit in such a way that their colour and materiality would be perceived in a particular way by the viewer.
[...] The Kunsthalle Basel will show the first ever comprehensive solo exhibition by Lee Lozano in Europe. In addition to the less known figurative and abstract paintings and drawings from the early 1960s, the conceptual language pieces as well as her complete Wave Series from the collection of Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, Connecticut, will be on view.
