Elie Halioua’s Poliptico 3, at the Gabarron Foundation Carriage House Center for the Art
   1  2  3  4  5  6  

by Donald Kuspit

One part of me keeps saying that abstraction is over and done with: What more can be done with pure form, at least what more can be done to make it expressively convincing -- "visionary?" Only by being convincing can it avoid becoming the formal exercise -- the clever, empty manipulation of forms -- it seems to have degenerated into as it has become assimilated into art history.
