DESCRIPTION

Abstract New England: Six Perspectives features works by six painters who reside in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and reveals diverse approaches to materials and abstraction. Compositions range from dynamic, shaped-canvases to works arranged in a large-scale, rhythmic grid. Some paintings incorporate expanses of fluid colors and subtle bleeds that evoke the meditative, while others pulse with energetic brush strokes and complex layering of forms that draw associations to graffiti art.
