GALERIA AZUR MADRID
a

The atmosphere and strategies of an era in which novelty, youth, political turmoil, ethical and aesthetic commitment, declarations and manifestos, controversy, search for new languages​​, and the decline of academism played the leading role, witnesses of the rise of an abstract movement that embraced and still embraces, to this day, different styles and techniques. Rayonism, Lyrical Abstraction, Constructivism, Suprematism, Neoplasticism, Abstract Expressionism, and Informalism, are styles that establish the formal, chromatic, and structural aspects.

From a process of foreshortening, image purification, and the Inventionist Manifesto, artists look for correspondences, contrasts, or variations from gestures, tones, and values. Diagonal brushstrokes, rhomboid shapes, figures with acute angles, and some curved and circular shape games established new imaginary.

The shift from realism to abstraction is a journey that, retrospectively, underlines the transition from early figuration and thoughtful studies on form, to pure geometry that prioritizes the chromatic structure.

Abstract Duty, Galería Azur’s new group show, highlights research processes of dematerialization of the form. At the same time, it looks deeper into the aesthetic and compositional search of artists seeking to uncover an expression capable of taking the lead – a unique and enduring identity in reality.
