About "Geometric Abstraction", February 21 - March 28, 2015

"Geometric Abstraction", February 21 - March 28, 2015

Geometric Abstraction has been around since the early 20th century, Malevich and Kandinsky being among the foremost early proponents with Mondrian, Hofmann, and Albers coming along a couple decades later. Initially art theorists of the time described the movement as a rejection of the illusionism of Western Art: the artists acknowledging and emphasizing the two-dimensionality of paintings (paintings are after all, flat) while denying the three-dimensional illusion.

Well, that is true up to a point; however, Geometric Abstraction works may certainly have considerable three-dimensional illusionistic space. What these early proponents did do and this is a significant contribution, is remove recognizable subject matter as the central concern of their illusion.

The artists included in the exhibition are David Brody, Robert Perlman, Chris Watts
