Agora Gallery is pleased to present Portal to Enigma, a new group exhibition exploring the possibilities of extreme abstraction and non-representational art. As its title suggests, this show is about finding meaning within compositions that can be obscure or even withholding. The work on display throws the spotlight on the non-literal components of visual depiction: texture, color, form, and arrangement in space. Portal to Enigma is a unique survey of the latest in abstraction.
Among the eight featured artists are some who play with landscape, some who play with figural studies, and some who work purely outside of representational boundaries. One artist fractures the human body into slices almost as if to show the movement of time across the canvas. Another depicts nature as a romantic, mysterious collection of impossibly rich colors. The exhibition includes experiments in pattern, texture, and highly intricate mark-making. These are some of the most energized, relentlessly curious abstract artists working in the field today.
Portal to Enigma begins April 25, 2017 and runs through May 16, 2017 with an opening reception on April 27 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.
