Why Abstract Art?
Abstract art is a type of art that has no boundaries within the real world. That is why I am so drawn to this form of art. It releases a sense of freedom that I can’t experience in any other art form. The shapes can be melded together and different colors can either flow to make a harmonious pattern or design, or clash in violent frenzy. Perfect for someone looking for no rules in their painting adventures.
Think about it. If you are an attorney, consultant, teacher, engineer, nurse and so on; you have reality every day. There are straight lines; things are required to be a specific way. There is a form of order. Boundaries, rules, laws must be adhered to.
But with abstract art, all that fades. There is only imagination. It can be anything, a house painted purple, sky that is green, not blue or no sky, no house, just shapes, lines, textures that come together to create an emotion, feeling, mood, or expression.
I communicate all this through my abstract paintings. It is an expression of myself that hopefully touches and moves others. You might not think or realize this, but abstract art, even more so than any other type of art, is very personal. I seek to personally touch others by communicating through the freedom and expression of abstract art.
“Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot see physically with his eyes … Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an exploration into unknown areas.” ~Archie Gorky
