Meulensteen is proud to announce DRMN’, an exhibition of new paintings by Ann Pibal. The show will be accompanied by a catalog with an essay by Robert Storr. In this series of paintings, Pibal continues to explore the possibilities of her medium through her abstract geometric compositions.
I overheard two artists in the gallery chatting about the deluge of abstraction that’s been around and one quipped to the other that abstraction flourishes in conservative times.
