This weekend I showed my new paintings, some interesting discussion points took place. People would enter the room then leave after seeing my works from a distance, almost too much to see. I asked a viewer what is making one do that, she responded that lead to an interesting discussion about understand abstract arts, how figurative are simple and one can communicate a language with everyday objects. Works that are abstract, one finds this difficult to communicate or access a language. When I explained about it, they felt a connection as if it is needed - a spoken language.
Yet we artists say 'art is the language, we do not need to speak or write', perhaps time is changing this.
