Inspiration for Abstract Pipes
Abstract Pipes became an idea while I was underneath my kitchen sink. Seeing the straight lines and neat corners of the pipes got me thinking. As man has ever sought to control his world, he does so with precision as nature would have done. Though built to last, pipes or buildings crumble eventually into urban decay. In a strange way decay can be beautiful too and this is what I tried to capture in Abstract Pipes.
Underneath the woven acrylic paint are golden pipes. These pipes can be seen in the four rectangular “windows” found on this piece. The red, orange and yellow lines are interconnected are the organic structure with white lines stitched in vertical and horizontal lines holding everything together.
I enjoy working on abstracts. There is a certain freedom available to the artist for expression. Abstracts seem to have their own language which some people can understand and other can not. As an amateur I make mistakes however, in my heart I know I’ve hit the mark with Abstract Pipes.
