In the Garden in the Distance
The material and conceptual threads that weave through the works in this exhibition are abstraction as a form of visual language, a minimal aesthetic expressed through material and its reference, and sacred experience embodied in non-objective painting and drawing. These threads have existed in the art of all cultures for centuries. In recent years, with the recognition of painter Hilma af Klint, along with other famous pioneers of European Modernism, the sacred has again emerged in the discourse of art.
What is particular to these works is the expression of a deeply layered set of specific time and circumstances that are a result of re-forming possibilities that have be left open.
