Formal abstract painting has long borne the unfavorable stigma of being too serious, too spiritual, too cerebral, or just too “out-there” for reasonable audiences to comprehend, let alone appreciate. But, what if contemporary abstract painting could alleviate some of the seriousness of high modernism with its very own tools? Abstract painting can put to use the old formalist notions of flatness, self-reflexivity, and genuine expression to create approachable and sincere paintings capable of communicating humor, humility, or even friendliness.
