Abstraction is pure freedom from representational material. It's a way to just "be" and let the form become itself, free from preconceived notions. Below are examples of artworks created using various abstract methods and concepts, some based on random line doodles, the use of participates silhouettes, distortion caused by the modernity of science, or the literal transformation of concrete signifiers.
For instance, one technique is tracing the silhouettes of participants (see Process Utopia) and then use those lines as the foundation for the final abstract work. (See Utopia) According to Pliny the Elders "Natural History" (77-79 AD) the origin of drawing began when Butades of Corinth traced the silhouette of her lover before he departed on a long journey. This style is also the basis for the work at the Columbia Sports Fieldhouse Series.
David Hockney's pool paintings were the inspiration for the portrait I did of my children swimming, which reveal the effects of how bodies distort and morph in a clear chlorinated pool.
Weaving in and out between reality and abstraction creates a balance of co-existing opposites, which helps to inform overall artistic growth.
