Free from the constraints of representation, form, line, and color are invested with new meaning. An intuitive and profound visual language emerges. The abstract is unbounded, open to interpretation, modern by definition.
One color can express an endless number of tones – the foundational visual element that defines these immersive works. Restrained in palette, the artists employ tonal fields to create an atmosphere of contemplation.
Minimalism invests significance in a field of color, a single mark, an accumulation of forms. The composition is distilled to its essence, the exterior world pared away in favor of a pure, immersive visual experience.
The still life genre traces its lineage to the Dutch masters of the 16th and 17th centuries. Studied arrangements of material objects – natural or made by man – offer explorations of composition and symbolism, abstraction and realism.
Plane, angle, arc. Shape and line intersect in works guided by geometric forms. Married with deftly wielded paint, mathematical concepts become a pictorial language, the hard edges of geometry softened by organic surfaces.
Painting the world as it is felt, not seen, expressionists evoke emotion and explore the psyche. Building textural layers of loose, gestural brushwork, the compositions offer an intuitive rhythm, inviting individual connection.
