A feature published in the winter, 2022, issue of The Irish Arts Review to coincide with the exhibition 'In & of itself - Abstraction in the age of images' at the RHA Gallery. The exhibition features the work of Ronnie Hughes and Helen Blake.
The exhibition assembles a selection of intergenerational artists, from those in their seventies through to middle decades to artists in their late twenties. The selection was made in the rigorous pursuit of abstraction and not the abstracted. Its antecedent lies in Malevich’s geometric severity not Picasso or Braque’s representational based cubism.
