JON NEUSE

Playfulness, experimentation and judgement are the principles behind my art. I begin all work whimsically not knowing exactly how it will look in the end. I experiment to make the visual relationships taut and constantly judge if formal artistic elements are resolving themselves into lasting relationships. It is difficult to make abstract art because, as I see it, there are no --nor should there be-- rules for how to create. I love to see something I have completed but what really intrigues me is the process in reconciling the relationships between line, mass, color, value and subject.
