Abstract Expressionism
Objectification Of Reality
Objectification Of Reality

The reversion to manipulation and objectification of reality

Instead of addressing the canvas as a platform for the art, and then creating abstract images and shapes directly taken from the reality of nature surrounding them, the Abstract Expressionist group addressed the entire body of work as one unified form of expression. No one single element of reality was used and then stripped of its visual characteristics. Nothing was ‘manipulated’ or ‘objectified’. The canvas, the paint, the frame and the space surrounding them all became one entire piece, created in its own right.

Perhaps because of this emphasis many of the Abstract Expressionist works are huge in size and presence. This group doesn’t have any set stylistic characteristics, but instead is a shared mentality of setting the artists free from the traditional aesthetic values that have been ingrained in him/her.
