MINUS SPACE is delighted to present the summer group exhibition On Paper, highlighting several generations of artists innovating at the intersection of reductive abstraction and paper. The exhibition will feature a single work by seventeen established artists from the United States, Germany, New Zealand, and United Kingdom.

On Paper will present spare, holistic works depicting geometric shapes, patterns, color systems, and diagrams made from a diverse range of media, including ink, pencil, colored pencil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic, transfer, screenprint, offset print, and photogram on a wide array of hand- and machine-made paper supports.

Participating artists include Roberta Allen, Douglas Allsop, Hartmut Böhm, Vincent Como, Julian Dashper (1960-2009), Rudolf de Crignis (1948-2006), Nate Ethier, Cris Gianakos, James Howell (1935-2014), Russell Maltz, Michael Rouillard, Erik Saxon, Kate Shepherd, Howard Smith, Tilman, Li Trincere, and Sanford Wurmfeld.
