"Geometric Abstraction" is a form of abstract art based on the use of geometric forms sometimes though not always, placed in non-illusionistic space and combined into non-objective (non-representational) compositions. “Geometric Abstractions” comprises works by three artists, featured artist Paul Lorenz, along with Judith Seay and Angelo DeFilippo.
In 1985 Paul visited China and was inspired to examine the making of a line through graphite drawings and with Chinese brushes. Though many of his lines are straight, by using brushes, the act of making a curve finds its way into the process. The broad ink lines made in China serve now as the beginning of compositions for graphite, casein or oil which question the definition of ‘drawing’ and ‘painting’.
