Abstract: what is it, really? The term, from Latin, means “pulled away, detached,” something separated from physical or concrete reality.
Abstract art is non-representational, non-realistic, non-pictorial, symbolic, impressionistic.
According to the Tate Galleries England, “[a]bstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect. With Abstract art we move beyond knowledge towards new ways of imagining.”This collection offers symphonies of colours; tone poems of images; quirky juxtapositions of forms, colours & techniques. All are intended to evoke pleasure in form, colour, ideas. [All works acrylic on canvas unless otherwise noted.]
