"Color + Abstraction"
June 15 - July 23, 2023
Royse Contemporary is proud to present Color + Abstraction, a group exhibition examining color and abstraction, reflecting upon the effects both create within artwork. Color and abstraction are brilliant tools allowing artists to freely express themselves, explore and share their vision while connecting with viewers.
As renowned artist Piet Mondrian once said, "abstract art is not the creation of another reality but the true vision of reality." These artists are utilizing abstraction as a form of expression as well as independence from artistic constraints as they explore their subject and medium.
While the emphasis on color with either the inclusion or omission of within their work is important as there is often an emotional connection and response while viewing color. "Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions," said renowned artist, Pablo Picasso.
Royse has assembled an intriguing collection of work by artists working in an array of mediums including painting, drawing, photography, and mixed media. This exhibition showcases the work of six noteworthy Arizona artists including: Cherie Buck-Hutchison Gerry Groeber, Joe Ray, Daniel Shepherd, Marilyn Szabo, Casey Wakefield. Each artist approaches their work in an original way, and we are delighted to bring this dynamic collection of work to Royse Contemporary.
The Color + Abstraction exhibition will open to the public Thursday, June 15, 2023 from 6:00 to 9:00pm. We will host a special artist reception with an opportunity to meet the artists, along with refreshments and treats. Color + Abstraction will be on display at Royse Contemporary from June 15 through July 23, 2023.
