Hauser & Wirth Zurich present a solo exhibition by the American artist Mary Heilmann. On display are a selection of works on paper and prints dating from the years 1980-2006. Mary Heilmann (born 1940) lives and works in New York. “She is considered one of the most influential abstract painters of her generation. Born and educated in California, she moved to New York in 1968, where she rubbed shoulders with many exponents of Minimalism and Pop Art. While her painting developed alongside these stylistic trends of the 1960s and 70s, it is not readily categorized in terms of a specific formal language. Rather, her oeuvre is highly original and the playful abstract images that she has created over the last three decades of her career are timeless.” (PR Hauser & Wirth). Galerie Hauser & Wirth, Löwenbräu Areal, Zürich / Switzerland. Season opening, August 25, 2006.
