Joshua Abelow blogs images of the exhibition Primary at Nudashank, Baltimore, MD, on view through September 14, 2012.

The gallery materials state that "Working against convention, these artists are putting into practice an 'abject expressionism' in respect to materials, composition, color and form, sharing a rogue sense of what constitutes beauty. Among other things, the works in this exhibition reflect an instinctual acting upon surfaces or materials. The artists’ touches are visible, active, and at times assertive--each tear, scrape, twist and drip intentional and impactful."
