Abstract art-Elevated form
Does a painting or drawing have to be anchored? To a base? The horizon? "Elevated form" attempted to rise above all of this. To take off, set sail above the din, even as gravity would have us grounded. It's a heavy form, chopped into existence by crude charcoal lines. Roughly assisted by pastel colors. It's the thoughts that soar and are elevated into a new existence. Is the background on the left an inner city wall? Is the blue on the right, the sky? Is that the route, the escape to a new life? A new vision? A more elevated existence? Halfway in, halfway out? To see other works visit yessy.com/emooyoung.
