Abstract art puzzles us; we ask ‘what does it mean’, or ‘what is it about’? Because abstract art is, well ‘abstract,’ that it is open to the interpretation of the viewer. There’s no right or wrong way to look at a painting, especially not an abstract one, the many myths and half-truths associated with abstract art are merely obstacles or stimulants to our enjoyment.

When you look at a painting, imagine asking the artist ‘what were you trying to achieve here?’ Tap into the internal aspects of an artwork, and explore how it makes you feel, what emotions does it bring up for you? Enter a painting and allow your eye to wander. Get up close and notice how the artist has used texture, colour, or shapes; notice the brushstrokes and try to imagine the artist’s thoughts in each one. Feel the power of a painting from the other side of the room.

I encourage you to allow yourself the freedom to engage your senses with my work, without the constraints of trying to understand the meaning, and so let the shape, colour and texture stand-alone and ‘speak’ to you, the viewer.
