Color, shape, line, form, and texture are the foundation for the language of visual art. Abstract artists use this language to investigate memory, emotion, and art itself. They move away from the expectations of creating a visual reality in their painting practice. There are few rules for this approach to painting; it exists in many different forms.

Represented here are four talented artists in our region who engage with abstract art:

Kendall Burns
Mia Guile
Dathan Kane
Ken Wright

Each approaches their abstract practice and mark making free of preconceived notions. Yet, they all offer a unique voice and perspective. Through a pared down visual language, abstract art relates to the human mind, emotion, and spirit. The work of these artists invites visitors to the expansive worlds suggested in their forms.
