Space Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition with new work by Anna Elise Johnson, Virginia Maitland, Lewis McInnis, Sangeeta Reddy and Stephen Shachtman. Each artist in this exhibition pays homage to the Color Field movement which developed in the late 1940’s. Pioneered by Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Mark Rothko, Color Field painting sprung from a desire to create a modern and even mythic new style of painting independent of line and figuration.
Influenced by their predecessors, the artists in this exhibition exploit the expressive power of color that envelopes the viewer when seen in close quarters. Seeking to connect with the primal emotions, rather than direct symbols, our artists do away with illustration and figure. Their interpretations of the landscape express a passion for transcendence and the infinite.
