The Abstract

The most difficult thing about creating a painting is finding the inspiration to make an original and inspired work of art, after all without inspiration an artist has nothing.  A painting in the abstract genre can be particularly challenging because to create a work of Abstract Art in either a 2D or 3D form, challenges my creative thinking the most. By definition abstract art does not depict a person, place or thing in the natural world, even in an extremely distorted or exaggerated way.  The subject of the work is based on what you see or feel using colour, shapes, brushstrokes, size, scale and, in some cases, the process and intuition.  I use poetry to inspire some of my work, in particular the poems by Federico Garcia Lorca and sometimes I write my own.
