Eleven new prints by architect Frank Gehry will be on view at Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl from April 22 through May 28, 2010. These ten lithographs and one etching recently published by the Los Angeles-based artists workshop Gemini G.E.L. depict various architectural projects – some recently completed as well as some unrealized.  While the prints in this series are not actual preparatory sketches, they reflect the creative genius behind some of Gehry’s most iconic buildings. 

Frank Gehry’s designs consistently blur the line between art and architecture, yet the aesthetic appeal of his sculpted creations never obscures the role of function.  Gehry begins each architectural project with a sketch, what he calls the “tentativeness, the messiness.” From these abstract drawings Gehry goes about refining his ideas until they finally are realized in tangible, three-dimensional form. Gehry has achieved world-wide acclaim for his distinctive design sensibility; among the most innovative architects in history, Gehry’s buildings seem to defy gravity and the natural laws of physics.
