Continuing the gallery’s commitment to abstraction, this small scale show gives us an opportunity to present many diverse approaches from a group of international artists dedicated to the belief in abstraction as a visual language. These nine artists combine various elements such as conceptual art, post-painterly abstraction, reductive strategies, mysticism and cultural commentary in a visually and intellectually provocative collection of paintings.
