abstracts from life: bay area figurative past and present
New Museum Los Gatos – March 24, 2017 – September 10, 2017
Artists have explored the human figure throughout the ages. One regional expression of this practice is Bay Area Figurative, an art movement that emerged from California mid-20th century abstraction and continues as an enduring tradition. Abstracts From Life is a group exhibition that explores the genesis of the Bay Area Figurative movement and features several generations of artists, including contemporary artists working locally and internationally.
Abstracts From Life includes selections from private collections, galleries, the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation, and the Oliveira Administrative Trust. Featured paintings, drawings and sculpture include works by: Michael Azgour, Joan Brown, Suhas Bhujbal, Linda Christensen, Richard Diebenkorn, Dennis Hare, Mitchell Johnson, Brigitte McReynolds, Nathan Oliveira, Joan Savo, Jennifer Pochinski, William Rushton, Terry St. John and James Weeks.
