Abstract Art is for Everyone
Art is available in many forms such as conceptual, performance, digital, and many more. It’s a real treasure trove of experiences to be had by anyone and everyone. However, I constantly come across people who feel alienated by some forms of art; whether they understand it or not, it just doesn’t appeal to them.
Some people may feel excluded because the modern contemporary art that is around at the moment isn’t their idea of art. It almost comes across as if one needs a full-on education in art to be allowed into the commonly perceived ‘exclusive art appreciation society’.
It doesn’t have to be this way. If you want, you can get into the in-depth, multi-layered interpretation of a square of red colour or a dirty unmade bed. If you like it you like it. There is a huge audience that enjoys and seeks out these forms of art – good for them; however, that is not what I am offering.
Have fun, lose yourself and feel happy!
I produce works that can be enjoyed on many levels in many interesting ways: the colours, shapes, lines, your opinions on what the shapes resemble, how they change once rotated, and the way the colours transform with the light. You are welcomed to actually physically feel the surface of the canvas, to experience the shapes, feel the indentations I create with my pallet knives, the long flowing lines that have many grooves to explore, and to feel the colour (yes I said it!) – actually experience the difference between warm energy vibrations from say, a red or orange, and cool vibrations from perhaps a white or a blue. This is a whole other topic, but there is a lot to share with you.
None of this is complicated, it’s a lot of fun and pleasure to be had, by anyone and everyone. You certainly do not need to have a degree in Art to enjoy it.
On the other hand, if anyone wants to analyse my works, I would be honoured and happy to listen or read about it. However, I am not entirely and solely focused on courting the art critics of this world. I just want to invite people to experience what I enjoy creating.
Just by explaining my approach, I have often removed the obstacles from people’s minds about abstract art. I have had the most amazing conversations while sharing my art experience with people across the globe, transcending language, age and cultural barriers.
So there it is, my approach to sharing the work I create.
That’s enough text from me for now, but I really hope you get what I am trying to explain here and have fun with my canvases.
