“Four Painters”. Is an exhibition of four artists and their approach to abstraction and its century long history. The exhibit will focus on abstraction through narrative, color and process.

The four artists, Jeff Elliott, Philip Heubeck, Sarah Huffard and Pavol Roskovensky each have unique styles. Their distinct aesthetic choices will work together in an exhibition setting, encouraging unexpected connections and visual dialogues.

Elliotts work, gives us surreal examinations of the subconscious human psyche, by emphasising narrative and language, encouraging an ephemeral sense of disorientation and abstraction by dislocating the visual world and its narrative from the logic of our own experience.

Heubecks work harnesses the energy of abstraction much like the abstract expressionists and land art movement. His excavations of material on a surface provide a foundation for our understanding of abstract painting in the 21st century.
Huffards work is light and airy, like the works of the minimalists and color field painters; she explores abstraction through color juxtaposition and presence. There is a grand scale; even in her smallest works, creating a meditative state.
Roskovenskys work challenges the viewers notions, not just of painting but of abstraction as well. He takes on the tradition of Dada, neo-Dada and conceptualism; to create visual experiences that feel familiar yet still very unrecognizable.

On the surface these four artists have little in common when it comes to aesthetic choices, but when exhibited together something greater is revealed; the scope of painting and abstraction in the 21st century comes into focus. Individually and collectively these four painters have something meaningful to say.
