The show explores the revolutionary styles, techniques and materials activated by various movements, such as Modernism, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, and Minimalism. It highlights the works of some familiar luminaries of this period, Allan D’Arcangelo, William Baziotes, Chryssa, Sam Gilliam, Man Ray, and Theodoros Stamos, while showcasing pieces by influential artists that defined the era including, Mike Bidlo, Lynn Chadwick, Ynez Johnston, Sven Lukin, Roy Newell, Julius Tobias, Idelle Weber, and Alan Wolfson.

From the late 1940s to the end of the twentieth century, many artists radically abandon styles of the past and explored new artistic approaches. They exploited the physical quality of their medi-ums, abandoning conventional structured compositions and direct representations. The artists’ unique act of creation took priority and in doing so the lexicon of abstraction, line, shape, color, and form, dominated their new representations of reality. As William Baziotes stated in an interview published in Perspectives, Vol. 1, no. 1 (Hunter College: NY, 1947-1948, p. 2), “Once I sense the suggestion I begin to paint intuitively. The suggestion then becomes a phantom that must be caught and made real. As I work, or when the painting is finished, the subject reveals itself.” Line, Shape, Color, and Form is a visual celebration of the extraordinary diverse styles, themes, and techniques executed during the second half of the twentieth century.

“We are delighted to present an exemplarily collection of paintings and sculpture by distin-guished artists that together illustrate the depth and variety of practices during this period in time” said Paul Efstathiou. “This exhibition highlights our commitment to bring exceptional and scholarly programming to Fairfield County.”
