As a formal device, the grid defines and divides space, serving as a framework for which a given subject might be expressed. As an art historical element, the grid has been employed as a compositional guide in renaissance painting, an ideal in the Bauhaus, and a form to be obliterated by the abstract expressionists and action painters. In many ways, modern life has been influenced by grids, from city planning to microchips, and yet, for every practicality imposed on the utilitarian x and y axis, there is a possibility for chance, spontaneity, and art.
Artists participating in "On the Grid" include Sabra Moon Elliot, Darlene Charneco, Bastienne Schmidt, Christine Sciulli, Mike Solomon, Colin Goldberg, Drew Shiflett, Patience Pollock, Daniel Sullivan, Robert Otto Epstein, Ryan DaWalt, and Josh Cohen.

In an interview in BOMB magazine a few years ago, artist James Little declared, “I choose to be abstract because that’s where I found my voice, because it best reflects my self-determination and free will. That’s why I love abstraction, it forces us to see things in a different way. It forces us to come out of what we have been trained and conditioned to see. It forces us to use another part of our brain.”
Little’s love for abstract art is now literally on display at the Art Students League, where he is also an instructor. Titled “New York-Centric,” it is an exhibition curated by Little that will run through May 1. As described in promotional materials from the 144 year old institution, “New York-Centric” is, “An exhibition dedicated to color, color theory, design, expressionism. All of the work on display was produced in New York during the latter half of the 20th century or the beginning of the 21st century.”Read More >>
