Robert Motherwell
Lost in Form, Found in Line
July 17 - September 11, 2010

Robert Motherwell was the youngest and most prolific of the group of artists called the New York School of Abstract Expressionists. Included in this group were Jackson Pollack, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko and Franz Kline. Their interest was in exploring the deeper sense of reality beyond the recognizable image. They sought to create essential images that revealed emotional truth and authenticity of feeling.

Robert Motherwell's journey through line and form provides us with a sense of getting lost and subsequently finding possibilities. An invitation has been extended into the soul space of the artist-a space where nature, memories and narrative all intersect.

Lost in Form, Found in Line was organized by Jerald Melberg Gallery in cooperation with the Dedalus Foundation, Inc. This exhibition, which features over 30 unique works and editioned prints by Robert Motherwell, traveled to five museums before making its final stop in Charlotte.
