Colour and Abstraction (Paperback) (George Blacklock)
about this item
A practical look for artists and designers at understanding how color relates to abstractionColour and Abstraction looks at how color was liberated from its subservient role to drawing in developing pictorial space, and how - with traditional roles broken - abstraction was born, allowing a more vibrant use of color. As a practical book, it explores how paint can determine the color and drawing within a painting, especially in relation to how expressive, cool, gestural, tactile, or intense the work will be. This, in turn, can determine the kind of pictorial space that the artist uses, moving both toward and away from depiction. This new book encourages you to understand how color relates to abstraction, and create a method of painting that challenges and advances your own style.
