VIEWLIST: Hunter, Color, Abstraction, Conceived by Matthew Deleget

Sanford Wurmfeld, Installation view of Cyclorama, Talbot Rice Gallery, University of Edinburgh, Scotland, 2004

Our fourth VIEWLIST exhibition is conceived by artist and MINUS SPACE director Matthew Deleget.

Ever since I was a graduate student at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn in the mid-1990s, I've been thinking about another art school on the other side of the East River: Hunter College. Since at least the 1950s, Hunter has been and continues to be one of the leading champions of color and abstraction, not to mention painting, among art schools in the United States. Hunter remains a beacon in today's post-everything art world.

Brent: Finding. You come out of a bit of a painting history; gesture; hints of constructive; a kind of record keeping; painting that pays attention to relationship more than heroics, though the mark and scale suggests that’s where you were initially coming from? Richard: Yes, I do feel that what I do comes out of, and actually continues within, a history of painting. I trained as a painter initially during the early 80s in Christchurch, […]

Sydney Ball: In Light of Colour, Sullivan+Strumpf, Sydney, Australia

  September 9-28, 2008 In 2007 Sydney Ball revisited the direct pictorial architecture of his Canto paintings to develop Structures 2, a series of radiant abstract colour works. The modernist architecture of Mies Van Der Rohe and Zaha Hadid – and their open-ended, problem-solving approach to refined ‘architectonic form’ – provided a framework that resonated with Ball’s artistic practice.  As a young man, Ball worked as an architectural draughtsman before moving to New York in […]
