Deborah Remington: A Life in Drawing
This groundbreaking exhibition organized by the Denver Art Museum in 2016 focuses on the work of more than forty women artists – among them, Jay DeFeo, Helen Frankenthaler, Joan Mitchell, Deborah Remington and others – who played major roles in the development of Abstract Expressionism, the first fully American modern art movement, which flourished in New York and San Francisco in the 1940s and 1950s.
Women of Abstract Expressionism offers new reflections on the legacies of these important women artists and their unique contributions to contemporary art.
This 1984 exhibition at California’s Newport Harbor Art Museum focused on Remington's work from 1963 to 1983 and featured examples of her signature Adelphi drawings as well as many of her luminous tonal paintings.
The catalogue traces the development of her "mysterious imagery—a fusion of mechanical and organic references—that has never ceased to startle viewers with its gemlike hardness, its equivocal allusions, its baffling symmetries, its theatrically heightened light." It includes an introduction by curator, Paul Schimmel, and an insightful essay by
Dore Ashton, a leading critic of post-war American art.
A PDF of the catalogue (now out of print) is available.
