The Rye Arts Center’s latest exhibit features the work of 12 abstract artists and aims to “enlighten” visitors about what abstract art is and how artists create their work in that genre.
The New York Times published Susan Hodara wrote a review of the show that explored how distinguishable images lie within abstract art. Hodara spoke to artists who explain how abstraction works for them and why they chose to work in that genre. She explores the artists aim to make work ambiguous and mysterious.
The show includes oil and encaustic paintings, monotypes and monoprints, photo etchings, paper lithographs and digitally manipulated prints, most produced in the last three years. There are intricate patterns here, crisscrossing lines and bold geometric shapes; there is symmetry and there is asymmetry, saturated color and black and white.
Hodara spoke with artists Tess Recordon, Kiki Dufault, Katharine Dufault, the sow’s curator, Roxanne Faber Savage, Patricia Spergel and David Fox. Read the full NYTimes review here.
