Anita Shapolsky Gallery
Sep. 17, 2023 - Jan. 7, 2023
The Anita Shapolsky Gallery proudly presents our fall 2022 show. Featuring the works of abstract art pioneers, we plan to take you on a journey through history as we explore the different works of abstract art from the late 40s until now.
The works of this seemingly disparate group of artists evince decades of the history of Modernism shifting concerns and practices through their overlapping approaches and shared intrinsic metaphysical ethos.
Their diverse solutions to overt Formalist tropes catalog a range of personal nuance and temperament. In many ways, they all developed an interest in separating psychological narrative from plastic form. Their works resonate in the interstices between nature and culture; underlying architectonic structure mediated through gestural lyricism.
They maintained clarity of vision while addressing the Modernist challenge of strict aesthetic tenets without irony or compromise to their quests for individual free expression.
