In 2019, being an abstract painter holds a highly dynamic and diverse set of meanings, especially when compared to those in the previous century. While looking at the definition of “abstraction”, among the antonyms is the word “simple”. In this show we aim to celebrate the complexities of abstraction both in its physical manifestation, it’s meaning, history and the artists who make it through their own unique lenses. Each artist approaches material, shape, color, and space in ways that uniquely reflect their own experiences and ideas.
