Abstract art: five names to know

Specialists Anna Touzin and Isabel Millar select five abstract artists whose reputations are on the rise, all with works coming to auction in Christie’s Post-War and Contemporary Art Day Sale or First Open: Post-War and Contemporary Art Online.


Opening at
Marian Goodman Gallery,
New York

23 Jun - 5 August 2022

The presentation will be comprised of a new series of abstract paintings and new intimately scaled works on paper, all from 2021-2022. This vibrant, abstract terrain is presented in conjunction with four select representational works. This new body of work can be seen as the next chapter in Moritz’s phenomenological practice – acts of deep looking that seek to understand the world. The exhibition is a continuation of Moritz’s longstanding investigation into memory as a form of knowledge.

Jennifer Higgie’s text "Again and Again: The Painting of Sabine Moritz" unfolds the artist’s life and practice - how her oeuvres have transformed over time, and how the exhibition is organized - in Higgie’s poetic language. An interview with the artist and her curriculum vitae are also included
