Taylor Graham will dedicate their exhibition to newly rediscovered early works in oil and collage by the German born American Abstractionist Carl Robert Holty. In a career spanning four decades, Holty became known for his biomorphic abstract forms as well as his geometric abstractions painted with a vibrant color palette. Indelibly linked to both the Abstract Expressionist and Geometric Abstractionist art movements, Holty was a major proponent of Modernism in the United States and was a contributory influence to the world of American painting.
