Auszug aus der Ankündigung der Ausstellung:
Abstraction is a logical thought process that shifts the mind away from the random and trivial features associated with an object or phenomenon to highlight and capture the universal essentials. It is a general perspective achieved through theorising…
Abstraction in art is, for the most part, associated with assorted abstractionist movements from the early 20th century, which rejected formalism and narrative. The collection of Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre also developed with a socio-politically abstract vector, turning away from specific movements and trying to capture the universal essentials of contemporary art. Much like abstract painting as such, this exhibition highlights the meaning and substance of line, colour and hue.
