Suggestivism features over fifty contemporary artists whose work is inherently ambiguous, and organic in process. Curator Nathan Spoor believes they follow the ideals of “Suggestivism.” The term Suggestivism in art was first used in the late nineteenth century describing the organic process of making art, the loosemark-making, and the ambiguous narrative. Early modern art can be seen as examples of Suggestivism. However, Spoor’s contemporary examples begin with the organic process and follow through with ambiguous narratives, but the artwork is tightly rendered, and illustrative.
Conceptually speaking, the term suggestivism refers to the ability of an individual to pursue their purpose with an amplified understanding and sensitivity. The artists involved represent precisely this – a wave of purpose, working within the more fluid aspects of narrative or figurative arenas. Through the mere power of suggestion, the magicis transferred from one to another, engaging the world at large from the most vivid and evocative of visual realms. (Nathan Spoor, Curator)
