"Abstract art is a visual symphony of space, color, form and motion. The space between those elements is like the silence of rests in music. The essence of the finished work is alive and urges the viewer to breath in harmony with it. The piece may have many “titles” as each person who views it brings to it, their own individuality. It is the melding of the artist’s intellect and emotion."
