Core is part of the meditations abstracts series that I worked on. On the visual level, the painting has shape complexity, color depth and a sense of natural organization. It's that sense of natural organization that I'm trying to follow when I create these meditative pieces.
As in any abstract, we see what we want to see or maybe we see what we end up seeing. I think abstract art reminds us that we are not fully in control because, sometimes, we gain surprising insights and perceptions when we look at an abstract painting.
For this piece, I pose the following questions:
If we respond to this abstract as if it weren't an abstract, then what is the subject, background, foreground, light source, etc, of this piece? In other words, In what ways does this piece have the same elements as a representational work? And, what happens when you say to yourself, this is a portrait, or this is a landscape?
What are the different ideas or themes that are working themselves out in this piece? Where are they? How would you name them?
