After-life of modernist abstraction

thesis
posted on 1999-01-01, 00:00 authored by Richard. Ward
An investigation of the consequences of pluralism for abstract painting. A central theme examines the possibilities for contemporary abstraction to question its own condition and history. The theoretical model of after-life forms facillitates an understanding of modes of abstraction which recombine unresolved, syncretic forms and address domains excluded by modernism.
