Tucked away in a beautiful gray barn in back country Stamford, the Downing Yudain team has put together a wonderful synergistic group of artists for a show called, Elemental Abstraction. The artists include: Mike Glier, Inness Hancock, Edward Holland, Sydney Hopkins, Bob Knox and Kathleen Ryan. Each artist explores the meaning of abstraction and its relationship with nature and its mystical powers. Abstraction, by its very nature, is an act of letting go, freeing oneself from the boundaries established by centuries of realism.

Gallerist and Downing Yudain partner, Lily Yudain gives a tour of the show in the video.
