One of the most compelling aspects of this exhibition is the artists’ drive to articulate a dynamic equilibrium in their work by bringing into play perpetual combinations of colors, forms, shapes and gestural marks. What lies at the heart of their art is the vital sense of infinite space, an exteriority, and an equally persistent desire to connect a personal, space with the world filled with a rapturous sense of exhilaration. The result is an exceedingly richly layered body of work that seems compulsive, spontaneous and deliberate all at once. Through this all artists convey a realness of the self and of reality, the elemental simplicity of being. All artworks presented at this exhibition are included in the collection of the museum.
