John Haber blogs about the resurgence of abstract painting, evident in a large number of high quality exhibitions recently on view in New York.
Haber writes: "Call me old-fashioned. Just don’t call me derivative. That put-down dogged abstraction for a long time, back when painting was, you know, dead. Since then abstraction has roared back, but by quoting – often to the point of conceptual art. So surprise, for early fall has brought no end of sincerity, with pleasures of its own."
