The significance of abstract painting from South America and its association with European abstraction is being explored in a show at Austin/Desmond Fine Art, London

Max Bill, Josef Albers, Victor Vasarely, Hélio Oiticica, Lygia Clark, Judith Lauand, Lothar Charoux, Geraldo de Barros, Anthony Hill, Kenneth and Mary Martin

RAUL LOZZA (Argentina, 1911-2008) No.278 1950

The title Abstraction-Creation refers to the European abstract art movement of the same name founded by Theo van Doesburg in Paris in 1931. This exhibition includes both Geometric Abstraction, Concrete Art and Constructivist art including the British artists Anthony Hill and Kenneth and Mary Martin. Although many of the artists in this exhibition moved away from Van Doesburg’s notion of Geometric Abstraction, they all championed a purely non-representational abstract approach to painting and sculpture. These painters were searching for the absolute and the struggle for pure meaning...

This exhibition is in association with Arevalo Arte, Miami, USA. A variety of works, ranging from three dimensional sculptures, to paintings, photography, collage, works on paper and journals will be on display.

A fully illustrated catalogue will be available
