Currently I am in the process of familiarizing myself with the Abstract Expressionist movement, so I can create a visual response to my understanding of it. As, I read countless pages dedicated to this artistic movement, I recognize within myself an intrigue in Art History. I am interested to learn all about the artist, their history, what led them to expression themselves in that they did? How their movement evolved? How artists like De Kooning and Pollock transitioned from the early figurative work of their past to the abstract work during their prime? I have become transfixed with these ideas. As I try to learn about them, I feel I learn about myself as well.
