“Every true artist has been inspired more by the beauty of lines and color and the relationships between them than by the concrete subject of the picture.”
There have been some eyebrow raising pieces that can be baffling, such as a long haired wig sitting on a floor with a few strands going up a gallery wall. Mark Rothko’s colored rectangles vertically stacked may not pull at your heart strings, but Jackson Pollock’s paint splatter may be more interesting. How could you not stare at Pollock’s paintings for a long time as if trying to unravel the web he has created with paint? Whether you enjoy these artists or not, art is subjective, but it is important to have an appreciation for what each artist brings to the table.
If you don’t really enjoy abstract paintings to decorate your walls, you may prefer the practical application of abstract art, such as a dinnerware pattern. It doesn’t have to be a traditional floral print anymore! Why not start your collection of abstract plates by taking the “Abstract Dinner Plate” workshop at Decoy Art Studio on Tuesday, February 16, 2016? Join us from 6:30-8:30 pm for this 21 & up workshop, and feel free to BYOB! One of our instructors will teach you how to create this Piet Mondrian inspired dinner plate.
