Four Minnesota painters come together for a large-format painting exhibition with similarities and differences in the ways they approach abstract painting. What their painting holds in common is their obvious love for the physicality of paint, their desire to create worlds that the viewer can enter, and their commitment to work forward in the historical tradition of abstraction, drawing on the past with the intention of developing a new visual vocabulary. Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. The techniques and sources from which each of these artists draws upon are diverse.
