modART Show
at ilume GALLERIE through October 28th

modArt Show packs in the abstract art at illume GALLERIE. Take it from me, abstract
art is hard, incredibly difficult, if you want to make successful work that is meaningful
and beautiful without treading old ground or being plain decorative. There seems to
be a fine line from what is successful abstract art and art work that falls flat.

understand these artists is to start to make categories for their type of art. I will organize
the artists in categories of Object Abstraction, Color Field Abstraction, and Conceptual

I would have liked to also review Color Field artist Bonny Leibowitz and Conceptual Abstract
artist Gary Perrone here, but since I have already given them glowing reviews for their work
in other shows, I will give these other artists a little equal time. Catch the show, which runs
through October 28th, with all these wonderful artists at illume GALLERIE and sees what
makes a mod.Artist.
