THOUGHTS ON ABSTRACT...where I feel I´m at now.

WHERE AM I AT NOW?

Since 2014 I have flirted with the idea of working more towards the abstract in my art.
This conversation started when I met De Es ( https://www.dees.at/ ) and his work. Ever since I have been asking myself over and over again, as I paint, where is my abstractness?
I was tired, of my storytelling, images I was trapped in. It´s not like I don´t appreciate that, it´s just that I didn´t want to be limited to it . I wanted to find my abstractness.
I had to find my truthful language in this medium.
I have kept this question with me in life and in my art, as I think one speaks of the other and back.
I observe other people´s process.
Some I can get, and others I don´t.
I ask myself why.
I ask myself how can I reach my own truthful experience.
I have asked other artist about their process and experience and what it is for them. What do they get from this experience?. I got many different answers, all very worth listening to and to learn from.

Since my life and art are the same thing, it feels to me now like it is the first time I have made a breakthrough in this way of making art. Only because I have possibly also reached this point in my life also.
During this trip to California last month I have been through many very special experiences with humans that mean a lot to me. I revisited many of them and this worked on me in a way I hadn´t expected. The friends I visited from my past became the present, that part of me also became the present.
I got an understanding of where I am at now, with perspective. The past folded up to be the present. I feel lighter.

I got back and have almost only worked on abstract paintings. Somehow I found my flow, my language, my experience that is feeding me a new very nutritious element: a flow without reasoning, for as long as the painting needs work.

I´m learning to work alongside of what was an initial image brought to me from nature, the basic laws of Physics. I´m learning to see and feel with the movement it grasps and dance with it harmoniously. I´m still feel clumsy at times but still practicing. Learning to feel the space and flow in it.
Somehow this is related to the Labyrinth I work in, the conversation between matter and space. This concept has also contributed to reaching this point.
Matter and space is the creator of illusion.

I just shared my thoughts on where I´m at now, this changes and evolves into, who knows? But this is the present.

SPANISH TEXT:

Desde el año 2014 estoy flirteando con la necesidad de trabajar más hacia el abstracto en mi arte.
Esta conversación comienza cuando conocí al artista De Es y su obra. Desde entonces llevo la pregunta conmigo constantemente. ¿Dónde está mi abstracto?
Estaba cansada de las historietas que cuentan, una y otra vez, mis imágenes. Me he sentido atrapada o limitada a solo eso. No lo desprecio pero quería poder aprender este nuevo idioma, el abstracto, mi abstracto.
Tenía que encontrar mi lenguaje genuino en este medio.
Mantuve esta pregunta viva tanto en mi vida diaria como en mi creatividad, al fin y al cabo son lo mismo.
He observado el proceso de los demás.
Algunos me llegan y otros no.
Me pregunto siempre porqué.
He preguntado a otros artistas por su proceso y experiencia en este campo y lo que significa para ellos. Recibí muchas respuestas, todos muy valiosos y con ellos he crecido en mi reflexión.
Como mi arte y vida son un mismo camino, ahora tengo la sensación de que es la primera vez que he entrado a este nuevo espacio en el arte reflejo de mi camino en la vida también.

Durante mi estancia reciente en California he estado con personas a las que aprecio muchísimo y que forman parte de una experiencia pasada muy importante. Esto me ha afectado de modos que no me esperaba. Los amigos del pasado se convirtieron en el presente, y esa parte de mi también se posicionó en el presente.
Obtuve una comprensión en perspectiva de dónde es que me encuentro ahora mismo. El pasado se dobló para convertirse en el presente. Me siento más ligera.
Desde que volví, casi he trabajado exclusivamente sobre obras abstractas.
De algún modo encontré mi flujo, mi lenguaje, una experiencia que me está alimentando con un elemento muy nutritivo: el flujo sin razonamiento, mientras dura la pintura del cuadro (…después es inevitable el razonamiento! Esto ya lo es! )
Estoy aprendiendo a trabajar íntimamente con las imágenes que quedan plasmadas a partir de las leyes básicas de la física. Aprendiendo a bailar de su mano sintiendo su movimiento y acompañarlo en armonía. Aun me encuentro torpe a ratos, pero todo es práctica, mientras, aprendo a sentir el espacio y fluir en él.
Curiosamente también siento que esto también está relacionado con el trabajo que realizo del Laberinto: la conversación entre materia y espacio, creando ilusión y fenómeno. (https://walkingindifferentwaysofseeing.blogspot.com/)

i am sure you found the way you were looking for.
the third paint feels the most close to me
it made me remember my childhood
since it resembles the shape of
natural bath-sponge
when looked from close

I know that, because I looked them from close.
p.w
mon used

nice to hear! Thank you!

Wow, it looks like to be used pouring medium!

Very nice painting art..

Thank you Shiab!

i think you are one of the few artists i've come across steemit who's very honest and courageous with the task of 'self expression'... i am glad to hear your thoughts on where you are at, right now, with regards to your relationship with art, and i wish you all the best <3

Matter and space are the creators of illusion, and the conversation of these elements and the artist's inner truth, I think, will generate a most beautiful path for the artist's arts.

Always looking forward to see your pieces, @romanie <3

Thank you Veryspider! I write these things anyway for myself but since I´m on steemit I decided to share them just in case it helps other people in their own search! :-) I´m glad to know you enjoy them. Best Wishes for you also! :-)

very nice draw i love this draws

Thank you Momoriso!

Love the one with all of the loops in it Romanie.

not really sure which one you mean with the loops. I´m guessing you mean the 4th image as you go down. It´s a part of a larger one called "Laberinto Dactilar"
Thanks!

Yes, the 4th one. =)

Wow, sounds like an awesome inner and outer journey that you took there! And even when the outer journey is finished, the inner one will still continue :-)
I really like your abstract work. Keep painting, flowing and evolving!

Thank you Almarlene for your encouragement! :-)

This is wonderful. I used to think abstract art was simple and lazy until I actually tried it. It takes passion and dedication to do meaningful one. Keep going strong in this path!

Thank you Promisearts! you know it!

Abstract language is the best language. You don't have to give explanations about the draws, the lines, and others. Our mind is abstract! i like your art, amazing work

Thank you Aidarojaswriter!

In some ways I see abstract art as representational art at the atomic level. As if in the abstract forms and shapes created by the artists hand and eye, they are on some subconcious level connecting with the world at micro level, giving us the "real" below the "viewed". Truly lovely.

Yes, Donna, I feel the same way. This is what I see also... super close ups of the molecules or structure that makes the stuff we are surrounded by.

To me, abstract art is the ultimate form of freedom of expression. There's nothing wrong with the classic painting, it's beautiful and very much appreciated by the viewer, but I find it limiting to the artist with too much restraints. Whereas in abstract, it's total freedom, I let the brushes and the colors take over to express my inner self. Quite often, unintentional images emerge within the abstract, which increases my appreciation for it. Although abstract may seem chaotic at first, there's always order and serenity in it.

Yes Drakos I agree! It´s great to experience.
