We can go on discussing what could be the meaning behind this abstract painting, but one thing is for sure – there are no right or wrong answers!
But first, a little history
Historians say that abstract art began in the year 1911 with works by a Russian artist, Wassily Kandinsky, who is referred to as the Father of Abstract Art. With his deep appreciation for music, he believed that colors also had the same ability to provoke emotions.
Wassily even went far as assigning a sound to go with each color!
Red sounded more like a trumpet. Green a violin. Blue a flute or a cello. Yellow a fanfare of trumpets. And white a pause.
Abstract art is a personal journey
They say that abstract art is a very personal exploration of art. A person can express what he or she could be feeling or thinking at the moment without using words to explain it.
At its core, abstract art is an exploration of form, color, line, texture, composition and pattern, and meanings are derived from how these are used to create a visual experience!
If someone asks you again what the meaning is behind an abstract art, just relax and allow yourself to be taken in by the painting, and let your feelings, memories, and sensations do the "talking" for you.
Let the painting "speak" to you. Take your time noticing how the different colors, strokes, materials, and surface interact with one another.
Now that’s a tricky question! ;)
As we have said, it's really up to you what you want to paint as it depends on your current mood, your feelings, and the memories and thoughts that fill your head!
Ready a blank cotton canvas, a pencil and have as much colors and paint brushes on hand as possible!
Use different shapes and lines and place colors in such a way that your viewers' eyes will bounce on the canvas!
Add details, too, to create the illusion of energy and movement in your painting.
