New Paintings by John Phillip Abbott
January 4 – February 22, 2013 | Opening Reception: Friday, January 4th, 2013 (5-8pm)
The Inpost Artspace presents The Happiness Project, in partnership with 516 ARTS and the Harwood Art Center. Marking the first exhibition for the Inpost Artspace’s 2013 visual arts programming schedule, The Happiness Project features new work from the Albuquerque-based artist John Phillip Abbott. As an abstract painter, Abbott explores the associations that arise with text and language as a narrative building device through the spontaneous process of additive and subtractive mark making. By embracing the unexpected, his typographic meditations are at once cryptic, and yet all together familiar; His process centers on developing a visual language that operates between the space of what is read and seen. The Happiness Project is on view through February 22, 2013.
