This exhibition expands the boundaries of the abstract tradition, at times avoiding arbitrary definitions in favour of interdisciplinary tendencies. The artists employ a progression of styles but all lean to a more intuitive gestural brush strokes and there are many instances of celebratory dialogue between markings, patterns and colours. Many argue that abstract painting is no longer relevant in contemporary practice however the exhibition speculates on the function abstraction has in an era where art can be a mobilising force towards rational political values, gender equality and regard for the environment.
