Abstract Expressionism finds a new voice in summer exhibition at ABstract EXpressions Gallery - Review by Mary Gregory
ABsract EXpressions Art Gallery presents abstract paintings, "From Rhythm to Form" by New York artist Marsha Solomon and paintings and sculptures and by Frank Bowman Krimmel. The exhibition runs from June 8th through August 31st. There will be artist's receptions on Saturday, June 16th, July 14th and August 18th from 2-4 pm. Admission is free.
In her portfolio of works titled From Rhythm to Form, Marsha Solomon follows a simple yet powerful formula, in which colors form shapes through interactions and absences. Each painting expresses simplicity, building strong statements from the most fundamental forms. The interplay of colors, the variation of opacity, and positive and negative spaces all combine to create a dynamic image that is about no less than the elements of art itself.
This series of work hearkens to and recalls the heights of Abstract Expressionism. The force of Motherwell, the lyricism of Frankenthaler, the alternatingly delicate and bold interplay of tones as seen in Morris Louis, all find a new voice in Ms. Solomon's work. In these colorful paintings, Solomon presents the viewer with a vision, not of theory and thoughts, but of pure beauty formed by color, shape and her innovative yet fully realized and accomplished technique.
In Frank Bowman Krimmel's work, clay can become a canvas on which to paint or a solid mass from which a sculpted form is revealed. But, regardless of the technique applied, the end result reflects a deliberate interplay of spontaneity and close attention to detail.
ABstract EXpressions Contemporary Art Gallery is the premier exhibition space for contemporary art in the area. It was established by director, James Kent, in 2007 as a venue to showcase the finest contemporary abstract art by regional and national artists.
