Nudashank is pleased to present Primary, a guest curated survey of recent works in abstraction by ten, female New-York based artists. The exhibition includes works by Katie Bell, Tatiana Berg, Susan Bricker, Stacy Fisher, Amanda B. Friedman, Joanne Greenbaum, Clare Grill, Fabienne Lasserre, Lauren Luloff and Elisa Soliven.
Working against convention, these artists are putting into practice an “abject expressionism” in respect to materials, composition, color and form, sharing a rogue sense of what constitutes beauty. Among other things, the works in this exhibition reflect an instinctual acting upon surfaces or materials. The artists’ touches are visible, active, and at times assertive—each tear, scrape, twist and drip intentional and impactful. Comprised of paintings, sculpture and the in-between, Primary is not interested in complete resolution and finishing touches—just warm embraces of the imperfect, irregular and open-ended.
