Exhibition: Harvey Quaytman: Against the Static

The UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA) presents Harvey Quaytman: Against the Static, a retrospective of the four-decade career of abstract painter Harvey Quaytman (1937–2002). Quaytman’s work resides at the juncture of Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, Process Art, and Constructivism—where considerations of line, distilled geometric forms, materiality, atmosphere, and texture merge. Strongly influenced by the work of Kazimir Malevich (1878–1935), Piet Mondrian (1872–1944), and Henri Matisse (1869–1954), Quaytman’s work reveals the interplay between earlier strands of European Modernism and American post-war abstraction, pushing the formal and conceptual boundaries of abstract painting.
