Unfamiliar Again: Contemporary Women Abstractionists

Completed
08/24/2017 - 12/23/2017

This Exhibition includes the following Venues:
  • Newcomb Art Museum 08/24/2017 - 12/23/2017

Hailing from across the United States, the artists in this exhibition explore new ways of abstraction based on experimental, process-oriented methods. Intended to defamiliarize common imagery, their works preclude figurative recognition or easy comprehension.

The methods of the exhibition’s artists are nuanced, time-intensive, and often drawn from unlikely modernized sources. These include “DIY” videos on YouTube, Photoshop errors, digital distortions, smart phone apps, and manipulated or synthetic materials such as scanned iridescent paper and digitally printed faux suede.

By devoting themselves to process, these artists experience revelation in the deliberate progression of steps of creative expression. Yet such discovery may remain elusive—even unfamiliar—for viewers as the artists encourage inquiry rather than immediate, cohesive answers.
