In line with its long-standing tradition, Opera Gallery Singapore is delighted to present from 24 June – 11 July 2021 the exhibition Abstract Masters, featuring a curated selection of abstract works by legendary artists who revolutionised the art world during the 20th and 21st century.
The works on view display the intense originality of a diverse group of artists, including Asian artists Chu Teh-Chun and Zao Wou-Ki, European artists Pierre Soulages, Georges Mathieu, Serge Poliakoff and Hermann Nitsch and North American artists Sam Francis and Jean Paul Riopelle.
Eschewing the traditional standards of art, these artists challenged and transformed conventional art forms to communicate their innermost thoughts and emotions, developing their own distinct visual vocabularies. There is no one style that they all share, the range goes from works that are incredibly gestural, aggressive and high-energy to works that are very silent and contemplative.
This exhibition offers visitors the opportunity to experience firsthand the creative ingenuity that made these artists true Abstract Masters.
