Contemporary Syntax: Edge and Balance

Sep 23, 1987 - Nov 03, 1987

Carol Hepper, Retriculated Chamber, 1987, branches, fish skin, string and wire, 72”x29”x40


The first exhibition of the 1987-1988 series Contemporary Syntax, which investigates several essential elements of contemporary abstraction. All of the artists in this exhibition share a concern with the minimal and reduced statement while maintaining an interest in the intuitive and lyrical aspects in the work. Minute changes in the edge or weight of a line, in the nuances of a color’s tonality, and in the subtle shifting of planes and shapes are some important issues that are addressed by these works.Includes the work of Carol Hepper, Lisa Hoke, Jodie Manasevit, Susan Rodgers, and Peter StroudThis exhibition is accompanied by a catalog with contributions from Alison Weld.
