There are people who are provoqued by the outside world and its problematic, and there are others who's artistic experience is forged in his interior, invisible. This is abstaction's field.

Abstaction is spirituality and sentiment. In these painting all is subtle or violent or harmonious, and as recognized figure has been suppressed, means are limited to colour,tecnique, and the plastic conception of the work. Here,nothing is apolineus-perfect,but dionisíac-sensual-gay-important.

Colour, released from his worldly association,selfgoverned-with independant life, is seen triunphant, dialogueant, joined-alone,aggresive-gentle,happy-sad....provocative....discouraged, furious-conciliator. Here de spirituality is not of a religious type

but consists in the development of the interior garden that exists in us,taking care while it grows and enrichens. This exceptional garden feeds whith our lived emotions and others assimilated from the work of some artists of wealthy spirit. I belive that an abstract painting is nothing else but the portrait of the human quality and spirituality of the author. Music without words is the most similar to Abstract Painting.
