An abstract composition is a joy to behold; for its every look and feel generates new imagery…

I once read that an abstract painting isn't finished yet, if the first thought that comes to the mind of the viewer, is analytical. Then again, it is firmly believed that abstraction comes from realism. Only, when an artist can perceive and portray realism in his work, can he accomplish a good abstract. This is perhaps the most significant difference between the abstract art of an established artist vs. that of a learner.

Student or otherwise, when we address abstract art, what we see and appreciate is the juxtaposition of form, colour, and space division in tandem with the selection of subject and the tools and techniques employed. Basics speak of a focus, balance, rhythm, and perspective in the compositional abstract of a student. And added to that is the element of light.

Yet, abstract art has an elemental quality – one that aids in the depiction of various things to various people. Whatever the starting point, a thought, subject or even concept goes through an amazing metamorphosis from the point from where it began to it reaching the canvas or paper. This expression may often be a strong idea that the artist wants to convey or emphasize; or may allude to an underlying concept, veiled by layers of overt manifestation. Such an abstract holds the eye and touches the inner recesses of one’s mind, making one want to repeatedly enjoy the art. Also, its depiction varies with the viewers and with the same viewer at different times.

Lastly, one must acknowledge the occurrence of ‘accidental excellence’ in art. What may have started off as one thing may well become several others on the way, finally resulting in an ultimate bonanza – a happening.
