From the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, Frank Stella created a large body of work called "The Pequod meets the Bachelor". His painting skills developed into a full three-dimensionality which I though was really cool. His sculptural forms derived from cones, pillars,  and fun architectural elements that are seen in his paintings. 

To create these works, Frank Stella used collages or scaled models like discussed in class. These were then enlarged and re-created with the aid of assistants, industrial metal cutters, and digital technologies (again as noted in class with the Charlie Brown architecture art movie). The mid 1980’s onwards were then filled with Stella three dimensional art work. By the 1990’s, Frank Stella had moved on to creating free-standing sculptures for display in public places, and developing architectural projects.
