> DESCRIPTION

Bernard Jacobson Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition that explores the nature of abstraction and how it is expressed specifically on paper. Discursive Abstraction: Works on Paper from the 1950's until the present opens on January 11th and will remain on view through February 25th, 2012. Please join us for an opening in the gallery on Wednesday January 11th.Discursive Abstraction: Works on Paper from the 1950s to the present. 

The exhibition includes works by artists long associated with the gallery such as Larry Bell, Sam Francis, Robert Motherwell, William Scott, Graham Sutherland and William Tillyer. We are also pleased to include a few non-gallery artists with Ed Cohen, Yvonne Estrada and Brian Wood.

This exhibition quietly observes a group of works on paper over a 60-year period by a disparate set of artists, chiefly British and American, whose primary common denominator is an eye towards abstraction. Ideally it will give the viewer an opportunity to observe various means of expressing abstraction on paper that are both fluent and expansive - it is not about a hard edge or geometric visual language so much as an organic and ephemeral discourse.Discursive Abstraction: Works on Paper from the 1950s to the present.
