New Geometries: Embracing Narrative & Content

Image coming soon.

Sharon Butler posts excerpts from Alex Baker’s catalogue essay for New Geometries at Fleischer/Ollman gallery in Philadelphia on view through November 12, 2016. The show features works by Martha Clippinger, Gianna Commito, Diena Georgetti, Jeffrey Gibson, Eamon Ore-Giron, and Clare Rojas.

Butler notes that “Baker sums up the history of abstract painting and then suggests that artists now, unlike those of the Modernist era, are decidedly non-utopian and non-experimental, but fiercely engaged with the real world.”
