From this point
abstraction has traveled far and wide, developing into many movements
and isms (Expressionism, Cubism, Concretism and Minimalism to name a
few) but two or three basic tendencies are characteristic. At the risk
of over simplification:
El Camino College Art Gallery is pleased to present the works of thirteen abstract painters who hail from Canada, England, Korea, the United States and Vietnam. Their works are well-informed, intelligent and wildly divergent expressions of abstraction. The exhibition, entitled 'In The Abstract', represents deep exploration of the many facets of abstraction from the exquisite Minimalist compositions of William Lane to the lush ecological (or biological) landscapes of Vi Ly. The following artists are represented in the exhibition: John Caputo, John de Heras, Roberta Eisenberg, Tom Krumpak, William Lane, Vi Ly, Jeffrey O'Connell, Margit Omar, Ann Page, Jeehee Paik, Bill Porteous, Don Spicer and Peter Sims.
A strong sense of compositional substructure informs the painting overall while each artist has developed a very individual language reflecting his/her personal concerns. The focus of attention may be spiritual, political, relationship, geographic location, internal drama or pure delight in color. Whatever the issue, all thirteen painters are articulate in their use of visual vocabulary, offering genuine contribution to the development of an imaginative and open-ended visual language.
