This event has ended.

While this decade saw the three in different phases of their careers, definite parallels can be drawn in their commitment to painting as a potent means of expression, and moreover, inquiry.
Despite their differences in gender, nationality and age, each worked solitarily throughout this era that was dominated largely by bombastic new voices, quietly producing what are still regarded as some of the most virtuosic works in their respective oeuvres. Though all of the works in this exhibition can be categorized under the same general rubric of "abstract painting", each artist approached the canvas from a unique perspective. This juxtaposition of these six large-scale works provokes questions of process, intent and composition that are among the most fundamental to the genre of painting
