Lyrical Abstraction

From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Lyrical Abstraction in painting is an opening to personal expression. The term was originally coined by Larry Aldrich [1]; other sources sustain that it was Jean José Marchand and Georges Mathieu who first used the term Abstraction Lyrique in 1947 in Paris. The name "Tachisme" is sometimes used to describe this movement.

Some notable painters "inspired" in this "style" are: Wassily Kandinsky considered one of the fathers of abstraction, Paul Klee, Frank Kupka, Robert Delaunay, Mordecai Ardon, Norman Bluhm, Jean René Bazaine, Hans Hartung, Wols, Max Bill, Gunther Gerzso, Huguette Arthur Bertrand, Georges Mathieu, Jean Miotte, Ronnie Landfield and Stefan Fiedorowicz.

The emotion in my work comes from somewhere deep down, and can speak to the inner part of each person... My work is intuitive; colour is the language that I use to express an emotion. It is the interaction of colour that interests me. Stefan Fiedorowicz.
