Gathering together a multigenerational contingent of painters, this exhibition presents a legacy of style that has become recently significant for its innovation as well as its critical stance towards formalistic abstraction. Since the beginnings of Modernism, the dialectic impulses between figurative abstract art have been fertile grounds for exploration. In these examples we see the “mediation” and humor of Pop filter through the rationalism of classic New York School abstraction.
