Girl Band: Linear Abstract Painting

Girl Band explores the paintings four women artists, who use a shared abstract language of lines, bands, and linear elements.  All of these artists aim to stretch the limits of the traditional abstract language of painted lines and bands.
Pat Badt, Marthe Keller, Julie Shapiro, and Kim Uchiyama, have each developed their work in highly personal and unique ways. Their works reveal an interest in the primacy of vision, the phenomenon of color and the materiality of the support. A sense of touch, texture, and gesture—one step removed—personalizes their work.  The interlacing patterns of lines are reminiscent of textiles, weaving and traditional fabrics, but the ideas imbedded in them are far from traditional. Think of stretching the limit, or elastic Bands, reverberating, bouncing.  
Part I takes place at Frank Martin Gallery at Muhlenberg College, PA in January 2014. Stephanie Buhmann, curator, writer and gallery director of Jason McCoy Gallery, is contributing the catalog essay and is curating an expanded Part II for a New York venue.
