Against Interpretation by Freek Lomme & Whatspace (Eds.)
Published by Onomatopee & Whatspace (2013)
Abstraction can be a way to return to the image, whereby the formal aspects of the image determine its content and its power. This experiment is being carried out by artists who use abstraction in a contemporary fashion. They use tradition freely, but also take on pop culture – doing so self-consciously, and aiming, through abstraction, to exude their own erotics.
