Abstract Painting Improvisations

by rebsnugs

Intentionally experimenting with abstract shape and composition.

Began reading a book simply called Understanding Abstract Art by Frank Whitford. I have quickly been introduced to Mondrian, Matisse, Kandinsky, Schwitters. It is helpful to see artists’ progression toward abstraction and how their personal histories shaped their ideas of space and form. I can not wait to learn more.
