Nature and abstraction have long been a couple in art. This year’s second collection presentation shows how differently artists explore this twosome. From Claude Monet to Roni Horn, from Piet Mondrian to Barnett Newman, or from Gerhard Richter to Tacita Dean – for all of them, investigating nature and its varied perception plays a major role.
While moving from one room to the next, we notice that Nature and Abstraction might just as well be called Clouds and Surface or Colour and Light.
The exhibition was curated by Theodora Vischer, Senior Curator Fondation Beyeler.
