Disrupted Abstraction - Mary Mary

Summer group shows are a great way to find new artists.  Glasgow Gallery Mary Mary brought together five paintings for their summer group show  Inside Arrangement. According to the gallery "The show focuses on what can be described as ‘disrupted abstraction;’ which is to say the artist’s use of particular motifs, objects and symbols to interrupt or re-work imagery and composition. A particular facet of this is figuration. In these works the figure does not solely function as a representation of human form or character but additionally as a device for abstraction and disruption."
