Abstract (English)

Catalogue to accompany a touring exhibition of Urban’s abstract paintings from 1994-1999. Pagel’s detailed descriptions of selected paintings focus on formal characteristics. In a transcribed dialogue between Urban and Moos, the artist’s use of line, colour and brush stroke are situated within the context of modernist painting (primarily American abstraction). Other topics discussed include: the body reference in abstraction, the significance of titles, and the relation between modern self/world. Cheetham situates Urban’s work within a “language of abstraction” drawn from works by artists such as Malevich, Kandinsky, Cézanne and Rothko. Biographical notes. 30 bibl. ref.
