At the heart of Untitled (to Frank Stella)’s exterior cool is an elegiac monument of the relationship between two friends who together quietly sparked a revolution. Dan Flavin and Frank Stella inspired each other’s collective aesthetic interest in achieving complex articulations of thought through radically reductive forms, yet their respective bodies of work each retain wholly individual approaches that are both iconic in their own right. Frank Stella's formal correspondence and friendship with minimalists like Flavin, Carl Andre, and Don Judd is particularly evident in their mutual visual concerns and common regard for fixed-format constructions, geometric purity, clarity of line, and serial repetition. Certainly, Flavin's diagonal versus right-angled patterns of his earliest fluorescent bulbs like Untitled (to Frank Stella) offer a close parallel to Stella's shaped canvases, such as his celebrated Notched V paintings. In accordance with Stella's early groundbreaking and seminal Black Paintings of 1958-1959, the ostensible simplicity of Flavin’s Untitled (to Frank Stella) maintains the purest essence of Minimalist art. Deeply occupied by the properties of the picture plane, according to Stella's lectures at the Pratt Institute in January 1960, flatness is achieved through symmetry and the use of the monochrome, a solution which forces illusionistic space out of the painting at constant intervals by using a regulated pattern. Like Stella, Flavin reveled in the potential for endless variation inherent in fixed systems of color and line, exemplified by the atmospheric rigor and sophisticated configuration of the present work. Flavin and Stella both mined industrial materials for their inherently sensitive expressions of light and space; as Stella used house paints to paint his expansive surfaces, Flavin also looked to the seductive industrial fabrications available in the hardware store. Michael Govan noted, “In the late 1950s and early 1960s…Stella’s efforts to banish illusion entirely from painting in favor of the factual presentation of materials on a surface provided clues for the new direction that Flavin took in simplifying the form of his work. Unlike [Stella], however, he chose to work with distinctly non-art materials—store-bought light fixtures.” (Exh. Cat., Washington, D. C., National Gallery of Art (and travelling), Dan Flavin: A Retrospective, 2005, p. 53)
