Urban Art

By Ashlee McMillan

This blog has been inspired by a visit to the ‘Abstract Expressionist New York’ exhibit at the AGO.

“Art is an experience, not an object.” – Robert Motherwell

“There’s no way of looking at a work of art by itself. It’s not self evident–it needs a history, it needs a lot of talking about; it’s part of a whole man’s life.”- Willem de Kooning

“I paint not the things I see but the feelings they arouse in me.” – Franz Kline

“Every good artist paints what he is.”- Jackson Pollock

“The painting is just a surface to be covered.”- Joan Mitchell

       “I’m interested in expressing the big emotions-  tragedy, ecstasy, doom.”- Mark Rothko
