Abstracts are tricky. They need to have a palette that’s contextually relevant, and they need to be thought-provoking (even somewhat mysterious) as they live and breathe over time. The artist is creating a new reality, and the viewer is being asked to enter that unexpected place. When it works, it’s magical. When it doesn’t, it just means it’s time to start over again, exploring new possibilities. This one made the grade. It’s called Luminosity.
