‘Art is the concrete representation of our most subtle feelings’ Agnes Martin
Line, colour, plane, surface, space, ground and paint remain the elements available to abstract painters in the 21st century. In this show 9 contemporary painters explore current processes and concerns in abstract painting whilst acknowledging an invisible yet tangible line to the painter Agnes Martin, who died in 2004.
Some use metaphysical aspects of painting to make visual continuing ideas connected with beauty, nothingness, solitude & temporality, whereas others adopt different methodologies or purely material processes.
This exhibition brings together a variety of approaches within the formal constraints of abstraction, opening up a dialogue not only with Martin’s work but also between each other’s work within the exhibition space.
