This group exhibition gathered works by six Canadian artists who bring abstraction to the edge of representation. Eli Bornowsky, Eli Langer, Kika Thorne, Holly Ward, Geoffrey Farmer and Derek Sullivan all question the use of abstraction through their own formal explorations. Many of the works directly referenced and represented Modernist paradigms. In some ways the works were like caricatures of Modernism, simplifying and exaggerating its familiar and canonized aesthetic concerns. Vivid colours, bold forms, elaborate compositions become tangible objects that relate to intangible ideas, materializing abstract ideas through abstract forms. This investigation into form for form’s sake is not to set Modernism up as a foil, but was used to bring out the specific qualities of aesthetic exploration, using form as a viable and particular method to communicate specific ideas.
