‘Contemporary British Abstraction’ is a group show including thirty-five artists all working in the United Kingdom. Selected by artists Matthew Macaulay and Terry Greene, this exhibition has been brought together to highlight how active and vibrant abstraction is today with multiple lines of enquiry being opened and explored.
New contemporary artists move in and out of abstraction easily, unlike the mid-20th century artists who were forced to take sides between abstraction and representation. The new generation of artists seem increasingly motivated to create work that sustains and creates new dialogue over the non-representational.
This exhibition is only a glimpse of the current abstract scene and the range of painters who are working in the United Kingdom at this point in time. By hanging these painters it will be interesting to see the structure that holds their difference together and whether it offers the viewer a coherent offering.’
