“Whoever has been given the power to see more deeply should dispense with form because differences of form are of such minor importance. […] these forms would largely disappear if everyone had the ability to see more deeply into the actual essence of things”

Archive Contemporary presents eight artists with uniquely singular visions working in the language of abstraction. From instinctive compositions to enigmatic forms, from syncopation to revelation, these works hone in on the particular as symbols of larger, more complex systems. Somewhere along the continuum of wholeness and withdrawal, “Abstractions” explores themes of technocentrism, alienation, solitude, individualism, feminism and the preservation of memory.
