Non-Objective Art

Non Objective Art
Today’s lesson started with discussion of an article about “did the Abstract Expressionist Jackson Pollock hide his name amid the swirls of a one of his paintings? “ This led into using something tangible to create a non-objective piece of art. There is a gap between lack of imagery and emotional response. Non objective art is just that….no recognizable object. Color shape & line are used capture this exact moment and infuse energy creating an emotional response. You can use lots of tools to get the different effects, today’s purpose was to free up our brains and allow us to put past behaviors & habits away and be completely free to express whatever was going on at that moment. Sometimes small finishing touches can push the painting to be completed. Such as with this painting, it didn’t come together until the areas of black white were laid out. A non-objective piece of art is an art piece where you can't recognize the things inside. Meaning, you see the art piece and you may have a few ideas as to what it’s depicting, but you can't really say for sure what it is because there are just too many possibilities. They are normally made to give the viewer a certain emotion when they see it. That is the goal of non-objective art…to create an emotion response. Pickup up a paintbrush and try it!
