2017 Art Journey: Abstract Painting, A Celebration of Contemporary Art by Jamie Markle

What does abstract art mean to you? What can it teach us about life and art?

Abstraction is bringing forth the essence and the spirit of an artist’s sensitive interpretation of content as expressed through the language of design. Abstract images subliminally communicate in another dimension of thoughts and feelings that words can not describe. We remember what we feel.

The Pastel Journal April 2006 Spring Edition – Abstract Category First Place

For Suzanne Jack, abstraction can come as easily from altering one’s perception as from
altering reality. “Water Gems” had its start during one of her periodic visits to the Great Smoky
Mountains. The artist, who lives in Knoxville, Tennesse, likes to get to the Smokies in the morning so she can spend a good eight hours photographing, painting and indulging her senses. In this case, she stepped out into a stream, then perched on a rock before starting to shoot photos from different angles. The photo that inspired “Water Gems” encompassed no more than several inches of real space.

Juror’s Statement
……What makes an art piece good enough to be accepted or to win an award in a show?
Above all else, the piece must “speak” to me. I want to feel the artist’s passion for the subject and the art of creation. Beyond that, I examine the means the artist has used to express the point of view – color, design, format. And finally, I consider technique, occasionally preferring simplicity one complexity.” Nita Leland, Dayton, Ohio
