Abstract Makes a Comeback In San Francisco’s Meyerovich Gallery


The Meyerovich Gallery is the ideal spot for your artsy mind to run wild and absorb the saturated colors and luxurious textures that practically jump off the walls. Until July 15th, abstract art enthusiasts can enjoy an exhibit called, “Abstract Expressionism of the 1980s: Frankenthaler, Motherwell, & Stella.” This gallery installation throws in a textural twist to the Meyerovich niche of mixed-media and multi-hued art and features works created with collage, linocut, and woodcut media. Here’s a sneak peek at the artistic brilliance you will experience at this top-notch creative San Francisco art hub.

Innovation in shape, color, and technique comes in the form of artwork by Frank Stella (see above), a renowned painter known for his adept handle on minimalism and post-painterly abstraction. Check out his artist’s proofs from the Moby Dick series, “Waves,” where he used sculptural forms like cones, pillars, French curves, waves, and decorative architectural elements to creates these complex designs.

Artwork by Helen Frankenthaler

Large-scale works from Helen Frankenthaler display her knack at creating richly textured and colored works and skill at working with models, melted wax, and printing processes. Check out her works called Alaska and Sirocco, clocking in at a large 50 x 40 inches, and 40 x 40 inches, respectively.

Artwork by Robert Motherwell

Robert Motherwell is an American artist and printmaker, regarded as one of the pioneers of the Abstract Expressionism movement. The gallery includes artwork that Motherwell imagined from collage and printmaking techniques. His work can be found all over the U.S. and internationally in Europe and Asia.
