Mighty Tanaka presents:
Interpretations of an Art Form
Colors, dimension, flow and definition are all words that can describe our latest show at Mighty Tanaka entitled Contemporary Abstractions, featuring the artwork of: Adam Void, Drew Tyndell, Greg Henderson, JMR, Julia Colavita & Lauren Comito. Hosted by powerHouse Arena, in DUMBO, Brooklyn, this art show exhibits the work of six emerging artists who represent different directions and juxtaposing interpretations of Abstract art. Contemporary Abstractions is a cross section of styles that highlight the range and breath of this established art form and aims to emphasize a variety of techniques and approaches that can be associated with the movement.
From found material sculptures and geometric design to painted canvas and tailored collages, Contemporary Abstractions features an array of complimentary talent that is pushing the bounds of an art form. The artist’s work strives to continue the legacy established by their predecessors and to create a solid foundation for future generations to grow upon.
