Oliver Sears: Abstract art and the philosophy of seeing
Dublin Gallery owner Oliver Sears describes how he looks at abstract art and how philosophy and linguistics have shaped the evolution of what artists make and how we understand what we see. From the earliest cave painting to contemporary mark making, Sears explains the links through the centuries leading to the explosion of abstract art in the latter part of the 20th Century. As Sam Walsh’s representative in Ireland, he will also refer to works in The Segment and Apple Drawings exhibition.
