Alfa Gallery is honored to present ABSTRACTION IN ACTION a group exhibition.
Abstraction in Action highlights contemporary artists who are pushing the boundaries of abstraction through their practice.
Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colors, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect. Strictly speaking, the word abstract means to separate or withdraw something from something else.
Some artists of this ‘pure’ abstraction have preferred terms such as concrete art or non-objetive art, but in practice the word abstract is used across the board and the distinction between the two is not always obvious. Abstract art is often seen as carrying a moral dimension, in that it can be seen to stand for virtues such as order, purity, simplicity and spirituality.
Abstract art is inclusive and pluralistic in its approach, including geographic location, age, gender, medium, artistic strategy, and content of work.
