Breakdown Analysis

Artists from the Impressionist movement onwards had questioned the reality behind what their eyes perceived taking it further to the area of non reason.  Into the 20th Century, Abstract art became the visual representation of the fragmentation of truth and life.  The breaking down of representational colors and forms spoke of the philosophy of modern man, that life is absurd, devalued and left to chance.  But can this truly be?  I don’t believe so.  The artist who randomly creates canvases with dripping paint nevertheless controls the outcome of his/her work.  When paint splatters into the canvases however accidental, they fall by the order of the universe.  My philosophy is contrary to what the abstractionists of the past say but use their own idiom of expression to argue against their philosophy.  Abstract art can never be meaningless.  This is why I call this exhibit Breakdown Analysis.
