Frank Stella: The Polish Village Series
Frank Stella: The Polish Village Series. "...The Polish Village Series is not a memorial. In making his works, Stella was not thinking of the synagogues as artifacts of a murdered community. His starting point was the inventive design of these buildings, which happened to be the religious and communal centers of the now-lost Jewish villages of Poland. He was drawn to the builders of the synagogues as distant peers, not as victims, drawn to the singularity of their accomplishment, not the anonymity of their loss."
