Abstract America takes over the Saatchi

Saatchi Gallery’s Abstract America: New Painting and Sculpture presents a survey of emerging art from the USA. Thirty-two artists are in the exhibition, representing an intriguing new generation of painters and sculptors. With a historical nod to their Abstract Expressionist predecessors of the mid-twentieth century, these artists are heavily influenced by the new digital age.
Abstract America is set to shape our understanding of the work of this vital group of artists, who have absorbed these many aspects of contemporary life and chosen very individual ways to communicate.
Some of the artists included: Kristin Baker, John Bauer, Mark Bradford, Tom Burr, Joe Bradley, Jedediah Caesar, Carter, Eric and Heather ChanSchatz, Peter Coffin, Guerra de la Paz, Francesca DiMattio and Bart Exposito. Above, Mark Bradford's Kryptonite. Working in both paint and collage, Bradford incorporates elements from his daily life into his canvases.
