Autumn Equinox: Collective Visions in Abstraction and Figuration
Autumn Equinox features works by fifteen artists who contend with the traditions of figuration and abstraction. These artists draw from the past to present fresh, contemporary perspectives on universal ideas.
Agora Gallery, New York is proud to present Autumn Equinox: Collective Visions in Abstraction and Figuration, an exhibition of painting, drawing, photography, mixed media, and sculpture contemplating current trends in abstract and figurative art practices. The exhibition features a diverse selection of international artists including Gabriele Pellerone, YoungHee Woo, Henrik Sjöström, Bo Song, Carol Carpenter, Jorge Garcia-Sainz, Sieglinde Scharf, Natasha Estanga, Fábio Salun, Ora Cohen, Susana Bergero, Kenji Inoue, Nora Pineda, Tina Louise Lambert, and GK AUSTIN II
Ranging from cool and minimal to dense and richly detailed, the works in Autumn Equinox examine contemporary trends in abstraction and figuration from nuanced perspectives. Employing personal, portable practices and drawing from diverse cultural traditions, the artists included use abstraction and figuration as vehicles to consider notions of presence and absence, public and private, and real and imagined. The fifteen artists in Autumn Equinox draw from the past to comment on the present, creating tensions between what is known and what is expected.
Autumn Equinox: Collective Visions in Abstraction and Figuration will open with a reception Thursday, September 27, 2018 6-8 PM and will remain on view until October 11, 2018.
