I am back into abstraction. But this time more accidental, more natural. In a different medium--acrylic.
I have been trying to figure out abstraction for a long time. And now I think I am closer to understanding.
For me abstraction is de Kooning. And de Kooning is abstraction. But abstraction should be de kooning's abstraction which was undefinable at the time, which is what made it a hit. But hit or not is irrelavant. It's impact on society is secondary. It's impact on society was not its creation but only the result of it's creation. de Kooning's abstraction, what abstraction is for me as well, I think, was a source for abstraction. His work, only the result, the product of the source.
So, what I am finding, what I am learning is not how to paint an abstract painting. This is irrelavant. Instead I am finding a process. So, it is the same as landscape painting. Only the result is different.
