Abstract work is an important form of therapy and self discovery. Sometimes before I paint i have no idea what I am going to do. I just choose a brush and a color and start with a random stroke or shape. Struggling with insomnia it is the best form of release. When you caint sleep for whatever reason, replacing that frustration with painting is amazing therapy.
The beauty of abstract work is that the same emotion and felling that you paint with, someone else is feeling that exact same thing somewhere on this planet.
Another reason I love Abstract is, you can get different interpretations and view points from different types of people and cultures. It is really interesting to see how different people react or interpret a piece. It is a great form of therapy and understanding of the self, as well as how we connect to others across society.
