Mapping the Abstract

An abstract is a brief summary of a research article, thesis, review, conference proceeding, or any in-depth analysis of a particular subject and is often used to help the reader quickly ascertain the paper's purpose.[1] When used, an abstract always appears at the beginning of a manuscript or typescript, acting as the point-of-entry for any given academic paper or patent application. Abstracting and indexing services for various academic disciplines are aimed at compiling a body of literature for that particular subject.

England –

Mapping the Abstract presents three artists who approach abstract painting with a remarkably fresh perspective. In an era where ‘The Abstract’ begets notions of technology and digital media, Benjamin Brett, Blake Daniels, and Robert Fry consider abstraction as a suggestive, organic, and gestural process – proving that perhaps painting, one of the most conventional of disciplines, ultimately reigns even today as one of the most experimental and exhilarating of all media.
