Abstract painting is a scary riddle which tends to be miss understood or unspoken of.
The artist must take a giant leap from all the things he knows and cast them aside while pursuing to achieve new borders of thinking by visual effect.
Abstract painting focus’s on building a composition just like a composer or an architect since there are no identified images to rely on.
Only a courage’s artist who is
willing to explore new areas while breaking his own boundaries may achieve refinement through abstract.
Till these days abstract painting remain a puzzle which demands more investigations and other ways of thinking.
Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Abstract art, nonfigurative art, nonobjective art, and nonrepresentational art are loosely related terms. They are similar, although perhaps not of identical meaning.
Closely related to this, is the idea that art has The spiritual dimension and can transcend ‘every-day’ experience, reaching a spiritual plane. The Theosophical Society popularised the ancient wisdom of the sacred books of India, China in the early years of the century.
It was in this context that Pieta Mondrian, Wassily Kandinsky, Hilma af Klint and other artists working towards an ‘objectless state’ became interested in the occult as a way of creating an ‘inner’ object. The universal and timeless shapes found in Geometry: the circle, square and triangle become the spacial elements in abstract art; they are, like color, fundamental systems underlying visible reality.
