Why Abstract?

Pushing the Dark by Mark Neubauer

To me, good abstract art conveys “passionate intentionality”. You should be able to feel some of what the artist was feeling when he/she was in the process of painting. Abstract is to fine art like jazz is to music.

When I began painting abstracts, the idea that kept running through my head was “beautiful chaos”. That’s the way I see creation. I see the beauty of a very intentional creator but there is also an element that looks pretty random or chaotic on a surface level.
