‘Colours are like words to me’ The most challenging aspect to creating an abstract painting is finding the inspiration to create an original and inspired work of art, after all without inspiration an artist has nothing. Painting in the abstract genre can be particularly challenging because to create an abstract piece, 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 differences in 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. Thank you for visiting my abstract art page.
