Simply defined, Abstract Painting - though not totally Non-Objective - presents a imprecise depiction of reality. But, what complicates Abstraction is it's vast collection of subcategories - including: Cubism, Surrealism, Minimalism and Impressionism to name a few - requiring an MFA to sort it all out.
However, to me, these details are unimportant. What does matter is that working in an abstract style allows me to disregard the boundaries of realism and apply feeling, color and dimension to create something different, something unique and something moving. As you can see my abstract work travels between almost entirely non-objective to a blending of figurative images with non-objective forms and surroundings.
