DESCRIPTION
Von Lintel Gallery is pleased to present Driven to Abstraction, a group show of eight contemporary abstract artists who represent a diverse range of entry points into abstraction.

Dannielle Tegeder's angular constructions push geometric-based abstraction in new directions, while Amy Ellingson and Lisa Corinne Davis' elaborate layering and accumulated details marry geometry with organic structures. In Canan Tolon's fragmented paintings spaces are recognizable yet elude description. Catherine Howe's abstract-leaning paintings emerge spontaneously from gestures and imagined forms as Andrea Belag also focuses on gesture, creating compositions of lush brushstrokes and washes of color. Carrie Yamaoka extends and inverts a situationist minimalism while Rebecca Smith's painting-sculpture hybrids manipulate and transform the grid.
