CURRENT AND UPCOMING BYRDCLIFFE EVENTS

COMPOSITION: THE ABSTRACT LANDSCAPE
Composition: The Abstract Landscape examines the ways in which abstract paintings rely on spatial relationships in nature. Not all works in the show are identified by the artist as landscape, and some are fully non-objective. But all of the work is structured in ways that reveal how the compositional tools of landscape painting remain guiding principles in the creation of abstraction. Curated by Derin Tanyol. Read more
