Installation-Abstract, adj.- Expressing a quality apart from an object

Selby Galleries I and II: The resurgence of abstract painting in contemporary art has provided the opportunity to explore current trends in relationship to the historic movements that began to appear nearly a century ago and the new directions being taken by painters today. The subject will be addressed through the work of emerging, mid-career and well-established artists who have been inspired by the concepts developed in the past, nature, music, mathematics, the spiritual and new media.

Peter Plagens (born 1941 in Dayton, Ohio) is an American art critic, painter and novelist. He received his BFA from the University of Southern California and his MFA from Syracuse University. From 1989 until 2003 Plagens was a senior writer and art critic for Newsweek. He now writes about art for the Wall Street Journal and for ArtForum magazine. Although Plagens is perceived as a critic who happens to paint, he thinks of himself as a painter who happens to write art criticism. His work is the collections of the Albright-Knox Gallery, Baltimore Museum of Art and the Hirshhorn Museum, among others; and is represented by the Nancy Hoffman Gallery, New York.

“Here is work that looks like no one else’s and keeps on doing so as it changes according to nothing but the inner necessity of the artist.” – Alan G. Artner, Chicago Tribune art critic
