Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Four Degrees of Abstraction

Wednesday, June 20th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Four Degrees of Abstraction, a group show curated by Anne-Brigitte Sirois. 

Four Degrees of Abstraction brings together paintings by four artists, Xiaofu Wang, Suzanne Olivier, Cora Cohen, and Morgan Everhart, working in various degrees of abstraction and investigates each artist’s iconographic relation with nature. The exhibition aims to consider the hierarchical distinctions first positioned by art critic and champion of abstract painting, Clement Greenberg, who wrote in his essay On Abstract Art(1944), “Let painting confine itself to the disposition pure and simple of color and line, and not intrigue us by associations with things we can experience more authentically elsewhere… art that is representational too easily suggests narrative and thus panders to literature.” Nearly seventy-five years and many waves of Clem-bashing later, the formalist perspective occupies a position at the zenith of the established culture, yet it remains a subject of controversy.

The show will run June 21st – July 28th.
