Abstraction, generally known as the process by which higher concepts are derived from the use of realistic or concrete concepts, is formed by the reduction of visual information and content. Each highly personal work retains only the information that is relevant to the artist.

Abstraction has always had its place in the evolutionary trajectory of art and once again has become a genre of great interest. Edelman Arts is pleased to announce ‘Abstraction: What is Real’, on view March 1 – April 25th. The exhibition will include works by Kenneth Noland, Anthony Caro, John Chamberlain, Chris Martin, Doug Argue, Nabil Nahas, Jules Olitski, George Rickey and Frank Stella.

“Abstraction is transcendence. Realities are stripped of complication allowing us to see with our minds what we are physically unable to see with our eyes. We enter a realm beyond the tangible, extracting the infinite from the finite. Abstraction is the “emancipation of the mind. It is an explosion into the unknown.” – Arshile Gorky

Gallery Hours: Monday – Friday 10am – 6pm, Saturday 11am – 6pm.
