About the Show:
Have you ever wondered what an artist was thinking when they painted a still life with fruit? Were they hungry? Did they just like the colors or perhaps the way the light struck the apple? Or do you just accept it as an image of something you recognize, something familiar, something REAL? But what is this abstract piece? It looks like a bird, you say. NO! If we wanted to paint a bird, we would have!
Abstract painting is the physical manifestation of the artist’s feelings or ideas as expressed by forms, colors, textures, lines, and gestures. It is a brief excursion into the artist's mind, sometimes a happy journey… but not always. It invites the viewer to contemplate, imagine, and question. It is an attempt at a secret conversation between the viewer and the creator. But it does not depend on any one interpretation. The work can speak to each of us in different ways depending on our own feelings at the moment. And that is fine. The piece won’t judge.
