New Works by Brendan Carroll, Ben Steele and Zuzka Vaclavik

May 6 to June 10, 2017

opening reception: May 6, 6 pm
artist talk: May 13, 2 pm

ABSTRACTS presents the work of Poem 88 artists, Brendan Carroll, Ben Steele and Zuzka Vaclavik. Non-objective and Objective Abstraction are at play in these paintings referencing gesture and color field, natural forms, quotidian objects, and signs; thus, in their rigorous study of painting, each artist embraces the hallmarks of modernism through their individual strategies. All three artists have works in important private collections, the permanent collection of the High Museum of Art, and Carroll, also, at MOCA-Ga.
