Quintessence: 6 Perspectives on Abstraction
This summer, Haines Gallery is pleased to present Quintessence: 6 Perspectives on Abstraction, a group exhibition bringing together works by six contemporary artists to consider a range of approaches to nonfigurative art. The exhibition includes new paintings by artists working with Haines Gallery for the first time, alongside a selection of key works by familiar Bay Area artists from various points in their careers. Each represented practice is wholly distinct and individual, highlighting different aspects of creation: color and light, form and material. These diverse creative viewpoints are unified by a shared desire to reexamine the ways we view and understand painting, both as an act and an object.
