Definition of Abstract Art

Definition of Abstract Art from the Tate Modern: A cluster of theoretical ideas lies behind abstract art. The idea of art for art's sake – that art should be purely about the creation of beautiful effects. The idea that art can or should be like music – that just as music is patterns of sound, art's effects should be created by pure patterns of form, colour and line. The idea, derived from the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, that the highest form of beauty lies not in the forms of the real world but in geometry. The idea that abstract art, to the extent that it does not represent the material world, can be seen to represent the spiritual. In general abstract art is seen as carrying a moral dimension, in that it can be seen to stand for virtues such as order, purity, simplicity and spirituality.

Interiors are Motivation

"Interiors are motivation; and they speak louder than voices. People are searching for spiritual experiences. Environments featuring art and design can provide those experiences."

Thank you Mark for representing my art and thank you Jeffery for doing a great job of hanging it. 
"Gold Leaf Diptych" 48 x 60 inches
Patricia Gray - Gold Leaf with Resin on Canvas


This is a gold leaf diptych in progress in my studio. It has few more steps to go and it will be ready to have a resin finish applied.

Here I am in the studio applying the finishing layer of resin to a Gold Leaf Diptych. I am using a blow torch to cover every inch of the surface to eliminate bubbles and create a mirror like finish.
