Experiments in abstraction


These experiments in abstraction made me face a series of questions I have about my work. These drawings were part of a deconstruction process I undertook. The questions which I found most difficult to deal with were,

What does abstraction mean to me?

Is it a bad thing to express emotion in my work, and if so why?

What message am I trying to convey?

Is there a way I can rationalise this process?

I began by making a series of abstract paintings and drawings, but because I had so many questions I felt my work was not resonating with me and that I had to focus on where my practice was rooted, where the actual incentive lies for my artistic endeavor.  Inevitably I have now taken the  path of  critical  analysis, exploration and a search for answers.
