The reason I chose them was that I knew I was going to be pressed for time this month....and I figured abstracts are intuitive, right?? I can just paint something that speaks to me and let it happen, right??? WELL, I know abstraction is NOT EASY...but I have been challenged, to say the least, in making my work close to LOOKING like something...It's been a love hate process I can tell you!!!
Click on each image to see a larger version...there are 3 more days to go so I'll post those another time.
As you can see both of these artists use shape, line and colour in different ways. I am attracted to both...it's hard for me to understand or say why, really. I've tried to make similar gestures and colours in this month's journey, but they don't turn out this way...so I realize in abstraction...well I have something different to say. It won't be the same...my voice is different! And I LOVE that I enjoy other people's voices!
That's what I've been up to this past month! Let me know what you think about abstract art. Do you like it? Do you paint them? Why do you paint them?? Let me know which one speaks to you!
