Exuberant abstracts

April 16, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another purposively, to cause vibrations in the soul.  - Wassily Kandinsky

If you’re looking for Kandinsky’s colorful “vibrations in the soul”, you can’t do better than the vibrant Cadillac Ranch and the lesser known (but just as colorful) Slug Bug Ranch.  Years of panting and overpainting have created peeling, dripping layers that transform into abstract canvases when viewed up close. Sheer bliss for an abstract photographer!
