Powerful abstractions in response to Gaza Strip attack by Israel Defense Force 2009

John Goto 'Mosaic' exhibition of pixelated abstractions at Edinburgh Printmakers
in Scotland.

For me, this is powerful stuff and it's worth spending time looking at the thinking behind this exhibition. Also, it shows the power abstraction still has as a genre within contemporary art. There is also an accompanying essay on pdf you can download here. They seem very close to Sean Scully's large scale paintings especially his recent 'Wall of Light' works (see recent blog).
