Exhibition Abstract

Abstract expressionism explores that which is within whilst abstract landscapes explore that which is without, both explore the emotive response to its subject matter and seek to relay that to the viewer.

 

This exhibition presents abstraction in the colourist tradition, exaggerating colour and reveling in the modulation between colours, aiming to stimulate greater visual pleasure in the viewer.

 

 

Both artists explore emotive responses to the inner realm of the imagination and the outer realm of landscapes seeking to relay that to the viewer through abstracted paintings.

 

Abstract expressionist compositions comprise a non-representational balance between the elements of tone, value, contrast, shape, form and line.

 

The aim is to catch the eye, draw the attention and capture the imagination - and if we’re really lucky, illicit an emotion...
