H GALLERY | MIDTOWN VENTURA

Dab Art is pleased to present EGGIWEGS at H Gallery in Midtown Ventura. Aberrantly titled as an homage to the protagonist in the iconic film Clockwork Orange; EGGIWEGS is an international exhibition featuring 21 contemporary artists from around the U.S., Canada and South Korea. This vivid and striking exhibit is primarily composed of abstract works with an emphasis on color fields.

Stylistically, there was a break in the late 1950’s from post war Abstract Expressionism. Artists were experimenting with large fields of flat solid colors across the canvas. By creating a flat picture plane with a dense spread, these pioneers painted works free of objective context, favoring concept over technique.

One of these pioneers, Jules Olitski (1922-07) famously rejected any gestural brushwork, preferring to use an industrial spray-gun to apply paint to his canvases. Interested only in conveying the power of pure color, Olitski abandoned formal narratives with the goal of producing work devoid of all emotional and spiritual elements. While the original idea may have been to eliminate an obvious subject matter, the works of Mark Rothko (1903-70) in contrast, were highly representational of his personal life. His gargantuan abstracts were an eerie evolution of color, moving from brilliant, bright hues during early success, into a drastically dark palette leading up to his suicide.

The artists remembered for their color field abstracts attempted to severe an emotional connection to their work, fortuitously starting a entirely new genre of art. Similar to the artists of the late 1950’s, EGGIWEGS examines the psychological use color by manifesting the principles or attributes of the original movement in an exhibition of 40 impressive and undeniably immersive works. Artworks available on Artsy.
