abstract expressionism

Updated: Jun 20, 2020

Find out more about the art movement that drew me into painting.

Abstract expressionism is often characterised by gestural brush-strokes or mark-making, and the impression of spontaneity. This style, invented my American painters in the 1940's/50's became well-known through the works of artists Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock.

The word 'abstraction' means to distance an idea from an objective reference. This means the abstract paintings are nonrepresentational and live in the art world in many forms. Abstract art can be vast or small, made with many materials and on many surfaces. In my work, I love to experiment with textures, scale, and metallic elements to add contrast and depth. The process of layering is fundamental to the work although this may not always be the case with all abstract works.

why abstract art?

What really draws me to painting abstract art is that there are no limitations with what I am trying to achieve. When I paint, I want to express a certain feeling and emotion that a viewer is able to observe without words.

It is the use of a vast array of materials and textures that keeps the work fresh, and challenges the meaning of everyday emotions of happiness and sadness.

By keeping my abstract paintings art non-objective as possible, a viewer is able to bring in their own interpretations drawn from their own experiences.
