This book features 45 Cape Cod artists working in abstraction, displaying more than 400 images of their work. Based on her interviews with the artists, the author writes about their aspirations and approaches. The art, which include paintings, photographs, sculpture, and prints, show a range of approaches to abstraction, from those that include an interpreted element of the real world to others that are completely non-objective. Learn about the artists' lives, their inspirations, how they proceeded on the path to abstraction, and the ideas behind their works. Abstraction's place in art history is explored, as well as its relationships to other movements. The narrative gives insight into the creative talents of the artists and provides an understanding of abstract art in relationship to the world art scene.
Deborah Forman is the author of several books on Cape Cod artists and has written for Art New England, Boston Magazine, and other publications. She also wrote the script for a documentary film about the Provincetown art colony that aired on PBS
