Current Exhibition

Her California Continuum

April 5 - August 11, 2017

Katy Crowe / Helen Lundeberg / June Harwood / Virginia Holt / Pamela Jorden

What is the thread that binds abstract painters? The vocabulary, the desire to create beauty. The intellectual challenge. The conversation.

These five abstract painters span four generations of female artists working in Los Angeles. All have been inspired by the modernist painting tradition of southern California. Helen Lundeberg's interest in reductive abstraction began in the 1950s, and she knew June Harwood in the 60s. Holt and Crowe became friends in the 1980s and Jorden began having conversations with them in the 2000s. Personal relationships were forged through conversations about studio space and shared differences and commonalities in approach to abstraction.

A conversation doesn't necessarily mean that everyone is on the same page, but it is still a conversation, and sometimes maybe an argument.

Across nearly 90 years, this continuum of bold women have forged individual vocabularies, mostly underneath the radar of the international art world. Each presents individual ways of modulating color, light, volume, shape and gesture. They use their surroundings of landscape, architecture, nature and/or the figure as points of departure and are influenced by each other and the times in which they live(d).

Her California Continuum is part of a series at the 60 Wall Gallery that offers exhibition opportunities to artists from the Deutsche Bank Collection. Artists are invited to interact with works from the collection, or to propose works that incorporate new or historical genres, or both. In either case, it is an opportunity for artists to think about their own practice through a different lens and to positively expand the focus from singular to plural. For over 30 years, Deutsche Bank has been actively supporting the work of diverse artists internationally through exhibition programs, commissions, sponsorships and a world-class art collection of works on paper.

This exhibition is curated by Katy Crowe.
