In the early 20th century, painting and photography were regarded as vastly different art forms, with photography seen as a “mechanical” process that had little to do with fine art. Over the course of the 20th century, however, the relation between painting and photography has grown, and mechanical reproduction itself has expanded into the realm of digitally altered and generated images. With the aid of computers, the interaction between photography and traditional art forms is one of the most dynamic areas of art happening today...Read more about this selection

  Modern art discovered the power of simplicity. This exhibition features examples of modern and contemporary art that use basic shapes and fundamental forms to create riveting visual experiences.

Focusing on simple form and use of color to impart meaning, Back to Basics features a diverse international roster of contemporary artists from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation in Los Angeles. Many powerful images have evolved from basics: Josef Albers’ square, Anish Kapoor’s concave circles, Sol Lewitt’s precise stripes of color, Frank Stella’s iconic protractor series, Ellsworth Kelly’s saturated panels, and Donald Judd’s boxes of color and space. Other artists in the exhibition, such as Eric Freeman, Joe Lloyd, and Gary Stephan, use imprecise freehand strokes to create simple yet provocative explorations of form, color, and light.
 
 
 

Back to Basics deals with fundamental shapes—circles, spheres, squares, lines—shown generally in primary or monochromatic color. The construction of these works strips away any sense of representational description to demonstrate that less can truly be more. Elemental shapes work as memory placeholders to convey associative meaning, or focus on the artist’s process of creating. Back to Basics is the simple evolution of universal artistic sensibility through essential exploration of color, medium, and space.
