atomic modern

atomic modern 18 x24in acrylic on canvas 2012
I have come to realize that I am very influenced by the art of the mid 20th century. This makes a whole lot of sense, considering this was time when I was growing up. I was born in 1962 so I was a child of the sixties, and a teen in the seventies. All of the pop culture was up-beat, and full of hope. Life was groovy, and music / radio dominated our choice in media. The abstract art of our era was somewhat tribal, playful, and full of intellectualism. I am exploring this imagery through my subconscious memory, and my belief that through non-object painting, a higher more spiritual art can be realized. The meaning is expressed through the poetry of line, color, and form.
