abstrakt
GROUP SHOW

3 - 21 December 2019

Strictly speaking, the word abstract means to separate or withdraw something from something else, to separate from reality, to abstract oneself, but it can also mean something not concrete; free from representational qualities, even free from conscious thought.

The term can also be applied to art that is object, figure or landscape based where forms have been simplified or schematised.

Further, it is applied to art that uses forms, such as geometric shapes and gestural marks, which are said to have no source at all in an external visual reality, as if such a thing is possible. Some artists have preferred terms such as concrete or non-objective art, but in practice the word abstract is used across the board and the distinction between the various forms of expression is not always obvious.

Abstract art was often seen as carrying a moral dimension, in that it could be seen to stand for virtues such as order, purity, and simplicity but since its beginnings abstract art has formed a central stream of modern art encompassing many different forms of expression.
