Abstracting Reality

"Now...Sing!" (acrylic on canvas, 24x36") May 2012
According to R. van Vliet, abstracting from reality allows one to depart from reality by removing the depth and shapes of what is seen.  We change the colors and reduce the entire composition into a number of lines and shapes to create a new reality.  So... I imagine a choir.  I imagine tan and white faces.  I imagine blue choir robes and golden music folders.  Now... Sing!  -Erico
