How many exhibition works:
Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present In the Abstract, a group exhibition curated by Dasha Matsuura featuring new works by Abel Macias, Ellen Rutt, Rachel Strum and Madeleine Tonzi. Each artist brings a fresh perspective to contemporary abstraction, from geometric shapes to the suggestion of surreal forms.
Ranging from the purely abstract patterns in Ellen Rutt's textile based works to the loose landscape references of Abel Macias' work, each of the artists featured express intangible moments in each piece. Rachel Strum's (pictured above) work blaze in a riot of color and texture, creating a cosmic depth in each color field. Working with reclaimed and scrap textiles, Ellen Rutt engages the tradition of quilting in times of crisis to create fluid patterns and bold compositions.
Punctuating her works with points of entry, Madeleine Tonzi's paintings float across blush toned planes dotted with surreal architectural structures. Abel Macias' gestural paintings examine texture and pattern while intimating a natural space and visualizing a warm summer breeze. Each of the artists featured creates a non- specific space for the viewer to pour into.
