Understanding abstract art is easy: all it requires is an open mind and an imagination.!
Abstract art is open to interpretation, and that is one of the beautiful things about it. Abstract art doesn’t jump out and declare “THIS is what I’m all about.” Instead, abstract art requires you to have an open, inquiring mind; you must enter the painting and see where it takes you. Abstract art gives you the freedom to explore the artwork and assign your own meaning to the piece. This intensely personal process enriches a viewer’s experience of an artwork.
“With a non traditional approach to the canvas I create colorful lines, textures and washes; building up layers and then removing them, leaving an imprint, hinting to a visceral memory of what was once there. I want to evoke an emotional shift for the viewer, an introspective moment. Inspiration comes from collected ‘moments’ out in nature. These moments are interpreted, abstractly, through layers, lines, marks, and color. “
