Abstract Art takes us away from the literal into a more figurative world of shapes, colors, and emotions. It evokes feelings unique to the viewer and causes us to contemplate as we search for deeper meaning.
Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot see physically with his eyes….Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an exploration into unknown areas.
― Arshile Gorky
Viewing Abstract Art
Unlike other more realistic art forms, abstract paintings leave the interpretation up to the viewer. Standing side-by-side in a modern art gallery, two people contemplating the same piece of abstract art are moved in totally different ways. One may see it is dark and moody, while the other sees quiet and peaceful. Unlike realistic art, abstract art makes the viewer stop and think outside the realm of the obvious.
