Steven Alexander on abstraction

Tracer #3, 2014, 36 x 32 inches, acrylic on canvas

“An abstract painting is not a design project. Accomplished abstraction is NEVER just “about composition itself”. It participates in a long and diverse legacy of ontological investigation and proposition. It embodies, through specific resonances of color, configuration and physicality, a sense of place — psychological, physical, existential. It proposes the potential for meaning through the agency of visual metaphor and presence. It reflects a cosmology that is not anthropocentric or dogmatic, but concerned with open and ineffable experience, and built upon ambiguity, speculation, and uncertainty.” ~ Steven Alexander
