Face-to-Face: Recent Abstract Painting
Much recent art has involved overt social and political topics and has included text or recognizeable, often media-based imagery. How is looking at a painting without immediate external refernce a different experience for the viewer? While this exhibition makes no claim for comprehensivity, the variety of strategies employed by the ten participating artists demonstrate the vitality and relevance of abstraction as it approaches its centennial. Artists: Fandra Chang, April Hankins, Prudencio Irazabal, Shirley Kaneda, Byron Kim, David Ortins, Fabian Marcaccio, Dona Nelson, Jo Ann Rothschild, Sandy Walker. Essay by Katy Kline. Artist entries by curators Katy Kline, Ron Platt and Helaine Posner.
