Unfamiliar Again: Contemporary Women Abstractionists

Date: Wednesday, December 13, 2017
Time: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Building: Woldenberg Art Center, Newcomb Art Museum
Location: uptown campus

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 practices preclude figurative recognition or easy comprehension.

Their methods are nuanced, time-intensive, and often drawn from unlikely sources: “DIY” YouTube videos, Photoshop errors, digital distortions, smart phone apps, and manipulated or synthetic materials such as scanned iridescent paper or faux-suede finishes.

By devoting themselves to process, these established, mid-career, and emerging artists experience revelation in the deliberate progression of steps of creative expression. Such discovery remains elusive for viewers, however, as the artists encourage inquiry rather than providing immediate answers.
