Re-Configuring Abstraction features the work of four contemporary painters who have made their way to abstraction through representational imagery creating confusion between what is the subject and what is the object. Abstract painting is a mode of inquiry that is deeply rooted in the modernist tradition. Yet in 2012, each of these artists is exploring this mode of painting and pushing it into provocative territories. The results of which elicit reconsiderations on the subject matter and plastic nature of the paint.
