The exhibition presents a wide range of abstract paintings, each of which reflects a distinct style and unique aesthetic. Various movements, including Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, Op Art, and Neo-Pattern & Decoration for example, will be addressed. Providing excerpts from seven decades worth of work, the exhibition aims to initiate an unusual dialogue between historic and contemporary paintings, as well as between the inherent modern and postmodern concerns.
It is McCoy's stated ambition to stress the timelessness of the abstract language in painting, while allowing for older works to appear in a new light and for recently completed compositions to be viewed in the context of their influences.
Since its founding in 1982, the gallery has focused on furthering the understanding of abstract painting from a contemporary point of view.
