In Abstract Art, what can a line do?
Line art has been around from the earliest attempts by man to depict his thoughts. Line can mean so many contradictory things.
A line can lead you on the wrong path. Or it can direction your eye to a focal point. A line can define, limit, separate and when connected to other lines, frame or enclose an area.
A line can be confusing, it can be amusing. It can be expressive. It can be inflated.
A line can obscure and obfuscate. A line can lead to better understanding.
There are straight lines and there are squiggles. There can be lines of strict demarcation. Some lines define a boundary. Some define a home, town, city, state or country.
Here are a few of my line drawings.
