The advent of Modernism inspired artists to explore abstraction and in the 20th Century painters were motivated to pursue explorations with a variety of media in
order to capture both the material and the immaterial. Jackson Pollock’s drip paintings, physically vigorous in form and action, can be contrasted
with the ethereal rigor of perceptual light works by the Southern California Light
and Space movement of the 60s and 70s; and to the interest on phenomenology of some
conceptual art. The three artists whose works are assembled together in The Weight of Color, The Shape of Light, delve into these legacies; there’s a push and pull of the picture plane, a celebration
of both organic and synthetic pigments while surface and materials are manipulated
in novel and unexpected ways.
