Why Abstract Art?

Looking at an abstract painting is an intuitive and emotional experience…much like listening to music. Images are not defined. It demands a sensory response. I work primarily with colour, aggressively making you respond with your senses. Each colour has a wave length that affects us primitively in it’s own unique way.

To make the jump to abstraction, you must use the right side of the brain. It is not logical. People who respond strongly to my work are able to just relax and stop looking for deep, hidden meanings. They usually experience feelings and associations. These paintings are not just decoration. They are speaking to your right brain directly.

Abstract thinking is thought to have first appeared between 50,000 and 100,000 years ago. Modern painters started experimenting with it at the turn of the 20th century and have been intrigued with it ever since.

        You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be actually something that I
        feel I’d never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely large for me.

        Hi Ernestine,
        Thank you for your kind comments. Really, it’s not as hard as it appears. Everyone loves colour. Why not start by just looking at the different colours and the way the artist has made them balance. That will give you a way to enter the painting. Just try to relax and enjoy the experience. Have fun! Joyce

        When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the
        exact same comment. Is there a way you can remove me from that service?
