Abstraction means “drawn away,” or “being separated from material objects.” Artists use abstraction to portray the essence of their subject matter, looking past the superficial physical aspects to find a deeper meaning. Yet, it is nearly impossible to do away with the material world when it comes to the visual arts. Some form is required as a catalyst for the idea. There is a parallel in the way we try to find the essence of a person. Is it possible to look past the physical when we live in such a visual world? Is it necessary or naïve? The six artists exhibiting at the Chase Gallery work with abstraction and cultural identity, to show us both the apparent and the unseen. - Drawn Away is participating in SATURATE
