DESCRIPTION

This exhibition gathers the work of eight artists, all at various stages in their careers, all of whom have retained a commitment to abstraction, particularly in terms of the intersection of color, form, and medium. Works in the show are products of their cultural environment. Despite their abstract nature, they make reference to actuality, to the context in which they are created, and use a variety of materials to underscore these connections. The intent of the works is often multiple, emphasizing the connections between what is real and the visual experience of the viewer. Working in mediums as diverse as plastic, vinyl, nylon, wood, cardboard, paper, foam core, Plexiglas, acrylic paint, photography and video, these artists each approach the solid forms of geometry, the patterning of abstraction and the meaning of line in various ways. The application of line, color, and form in a rich, sensual way marks these works as contemporary objects that draw on a long tradition of geometric and abstract work and often evoke the influence of the urban environment.
