PORTLAND, OR.- Among the most important and
influential artists of his generation, Cy Twombly has used mark-making and
written language as the core of his artistic practice since the late
Twombly’s work has come to define an important branch of
gestural abstraction that conflates painting and poetry, line and word. The
exhibition showcases three recent works—two virtuosic paintings and a bronze
sculpture—that illuminate the artist’s continuing engagement with process and
content, the immediacy of materials, and the continuum of history.
