NEO Geo

Geometric abstraction pares visual art down to pure shapes, lines and colors, yet infinite possibilities lie within those boundaries. NEO Geo features recent work by artists in the surrounding region who explore the potential of geometric abstraction.

In the 1960s and 70s, painters and sculptors in Cleveland, Oberlin and Kent created abstract works dependent upon hard-edged geometric forms. Often guided by pre-determined systems based on logic or mathematics, they were motivated by their interests in science, psychology and technology. Artists working in the region today use a combination of pre-determined systems and intuitive responses to create the underlying geometry of their work. In some cases, these structures serve as metaphors for broader themes, such as the tension between the natural and man-made or the forces and systems that affect our daily lives.

Media represented include painting, printmaking, drawing, installation, sculpture, fiber and photography. Gianna Commito
