ABSTRACT ART AS METAPHOR
Abstract art expresses the artist's ideas and feelings and not the exact appearance of people or things. It is a dialogue between the artist’s experience expressed on the canvas. A relationship is developed.
The relationship between art and artist is not predictable and cannot be reduced to its parts. This relationship is changed by the dialogue and shifts from abstract (random) to concrete (ordered) and back again.
The relationship between the viewer and the painting is personal and unique. Intuitively grasping emotional meaning does not require titles.
Each piece is from a limited edition of 8 archival prints. A certificate of authenticity is provided.
Allan Gelber is a retired Psychologist/Psychoanalyst in Phoenix, Arizona, having moved from New York City in 1980. In 2017 he began to show his art.
Allan relies on continuing interpretation of the relationship between color and form as they move from his inner experience to the canvas.
