65GRAND is pleased to present the group exhibition “beautiful form” featuring current work investigating modes of geometric abstraction, curated by Abraham Ritchie.
All of the work displays the strong formal elements typical to geometric abstraction: composition, angle, flatness and harmony. Inextricable from this attention to the objective qualities of the work, is the result it creates, its aesthetic appeal. Or, more controversially, its beauty.
This exhibition gathers together several current approaches to geometric abstraction. Artists like Titus Dawson Polo and Peter Shear embrace formal aspects of abstraction with an ironic twist. Steven Husby and Todd Chilton investigate ever new ways of constructing an abstract canvas. Zachary Buchner takes the implications of geometric abstraction to the arena of sculpture.
