Artnews notes that* Yoo is/was one of Korea’s best artists and is now coming into focus (*like Zao).
Miguel Díaz aka Sekone, is a multidisciplinary Galician artist who started painting graffiti in 1996, in Vilagarcía, Spain. I agree with Boom that the series of collages he’s been sharing on Instagram are quite refreshing.
Artforum says “SEHN SIE TIEF 9975-15432-32718” is Christian Eisenberger’s most comprehensive exhibition to date at Galerie Krinzinger. Though these paintings are not abstraction they are abstractions literally and conceptually- and clearly owe their execution approach to a number of abstractionists.
Artsy notes some rising Chinese artists- the surge is apparently also pulling Zao into our consciousness which is better late than never (he passed in 2013) as he was quite interesting.
is represented in South Asian Art which explores Modernism iterations from this region (similar to Taking Shape).
Can’t mention Kazimir and not probably the best known Russian abstractionist. The impact of Concerning the Spiritual in Art has been profound, for good or ill, in how the idea of Art changed in the 20th Century.
Probably the best known of the Russian avant-garde, he was also El‘s mentor. Hard to imagine an artist who did more simultaneously to mythologize the artist and democratize artistic practice.
I follow a hashtag for Rita on IG- she show with Hauser & Wirth if you want more. Here’s a recent artist talk also.
Known as landscape architect more so than a visual artist, Pinterest though Roberto’s drawings like below would appeal given my interest in Fernand and Ben and El and Le Corbusier and Alice…
Another British Modernist (though later to the game than Ben, and multidisciplinary as well) that’s worth a look.
Encountered Selma in Lucy’s IG feed (who I encountered in Prosaic97‘s)
