SuperRare announced last Thursday, December 9, through its Twitter account, its new partnership with Vellum LA at Color :: Field. The exhibition launched Thursday night with a private viewing reception.
“In the mid-20th century, color field painting emerged as a style of American Abstract Expressionism that emphasized pure experience through color rather than representation. During the decades that followed, the field of color was used to describe the styles of many other artists, often for drastically different theoretical and conceptual goals. In all of it, the public can find a persistent emphasis on painting as their own experience, rather than one window to one”, he said through an article published on his website.
The company explained that Color :: Field embraces the complexities and paradoxes of this 20th century style as a provocation, seeking to draw a thread between contemporary digital art and the Color Field movement. The artworks included in this exhibition point out the parallels and divergences between abstract painting and digital abstraction (abstract art created using the logic of creative algorithms and software) that raise new arguments and raise new questions about the interplay of color, gesture and form into a reality. impregnated with the virtual.
