Intentional Abstraction

Intentional Abstraction

Abstract art is not about putting color patches next to each other. Abstraction is taking a realistic notion, and breaking it down to its essentials. Exposing its bones, its essence. It is the art of deviation, enabling the viewer to look at it just a little differently. It is knowing how to look at things in the face and saying, I can look deeper. There is a purpose, a theme, a flow and a design to abstract art.
