A painting by the artist James Foort called: An Abstract Experience

An Abstract Experience

Abstraction means leaving it to the viewer to find possibilities in the presentation. They might be immediate or protracted or not at all. It is difficult to believe that there would be no response. The result could be what feelings came of it, seeing a form of reality in it, or protracted or short lived puzzlement. Kandinsky (latterly) comes to mind. I can admit to sensing balance and variety in his art, a pleasant reminder that one might best set judgment apart and go with the flow. The journey could be more important than the meaning.

In the picture shown here, the two circles and the ellipse anchor the presentation. Chance dominates — that may mean there is more to learn. The ellipse suggests a third dimension triggered by a circle rotated to form the ellipse.
