“This exhibition emphasises some of the differences between art that is an “abstraction”, connected to and derived wholly or partially from existing visual images and varied subject-matters; and these examples of recent paintings that have none of those origins or recognisable characteristics, and that can therefore be more freely and simply called “abstract”. Such characteristics in painting are active changes still in progress. The distinctions become more apparent as we progress beyond abstraction’s beginnings in figurative and geometric composition and expressionism to the more complex and independent directions taken by wholly abstract new painting…” – Robin Greenwood
I will be showing two miniatures at Durden and Ray gallery, Los Angeles in the upcoming exhibition; Figura: Micro Macro. The show will then move to Luxembourg, where the Luxembourg collective miMO will exhibit it in an ancient former monastery.
