Elegies: Works in Abstraction
Curated by Anthony Anchundo
An elegy is a song of longing, a lament for things, for times, for loved ones that have passed and gone.
And elegy can be gentle or powerful. It can bring weeping or simply a soft smile at the remembering of something beautiful and beloved.
The idea of using the elegy as a theme for visual art follows these same contours, especially for this show dedicated to presenting the works of six prominent abstract artists.
Just like a spoken elegy, abstraction points to something beyond itself and inherently attaches itself to something of the past whether a form or a ghost, a memory, or an idea.
Each of our artists have selected from their work pieces that express the idea of an elegy – to choose works that represent their own vision of longing and remembrance of things lost.
These are their songs in visual form.
