Degrees of Abstraction  


21 March - 8 April,  2016

The exhibition presented a group of some works in the RossoCinabro’s permanent collection, representing a spectrum of abstract art. Artists make abstract artworks by abstracting the subject matter in their work. That is, they simplify or distort the people, places, or things they are showing in their work. Some artists abstract their subject matter just a little. Others make their work so abstract the subject matter is difficult to identify. Abstraction may characterize a period or movement as well but at the same time, it is a more individualized process, such that the degree and type of abstraction often serves as a clue to the artist's individual style. Abstract, idealized, and stylized are sometimes used to mean the same thing: a process of simplifying or standardizing a real object in some way, such that the representation no longer looks naturalistic. Sometimes stylization results from the materials used in the art work, because some textures or qualities of materials lend themselves to certain forms more easily than to others. Many of these artists have ignored traditional distinctions between abstraction and representation, choosing to create works that are uniquely personal. Recognizing the degree of abstraction and the reasons for abstraction is probably the key to understanding the artist's goals and meaning.
