Abstract expressionist

In class I study about the Abstract art. Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect. Actually I can’t understand why they drawing like that. Just poured, stumbled, flicked and splattered their paint. But I found some artist that her art work colour is so pretty. She is the one of the popular abstract artist , Helen Frankenthaler.


Artist : Helen Frankenthaler

Title : Grey Fireworks , 1982

Acrylic on canvas  72 x 118 1/2 inches (182.9 x 301 cm)

Frankenthaler is good at using colour. Her art work were no any topic most of the time, she just painted her works basing on the impression of landscape or thought in her brain. So her art works look quite abstract. She use soak&stain skill, Using lots of water when she painted and saw the paint was speared and their trace, so I think it is not really strong than other artist like Jackson Pollock but it was beautiful and soft! I like this image because the whole image are colourful and colour combine is really good. I love her works!
