Abstract relationships


Post by Anne Seidman

I fit in with the description of an age-appropriate art-Neanderthal because I make and am interested in abstraction. I also admire all this kooky, awkwardly-represented, young, dreamy, figurative work. Much of this work is just as difficult to debunk as abstraction but I am attracted to it for the same reason that I find non-figurative work intriguing. It attempts to reveal just what makes us human.

This exposure might involve literal relationships with others, ourselves, politics, animals, philosophies, nightmares or something as simple as how we create and organize form. Ultimately this discloses to ourselves and others just who we are. (image is “Stripes” by Seidman) –Painter Anne Seidman is a regular contributer to artblog
