“Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colours, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential.” — Wassily Kandinsky.
Kandinsky believed that colors provoke emotions. Red was lively and confident; Green was peaceful with inner strength; Blue was deep and supernatural; Yellow could be warm, exciting, disturbing or totally bonkers; and White seemed silent but full of possibilities. He also assigned instrument tones to go with each color: Red sounded like a trumpet; Green sounded like a middle-position violin; Light Blue sounded like flute; Dark Blue sounded like a cello, Yellow sounded like a fanfare of trumpets; and White sounded like the pause in a harmonious melody.
When you paint, you always refer to something. If it isn’t to the outside world, it is to your own body, or mood, something you know, or the idea you have in mind while you paint. My experience is: when you paint without having any subject in mind, you create a depiction of yourself, or the way you are or feel at that moment. Sometimes even organs like the heart or the kidneys can be pointed out on a painting like that. This body-thing is important, because in abstract painting techniques, you actually work with the thinking capacity of your body. Just like graffity-painters and dancers do. And: when you conciously relate to your painting with your body, you will enable your onlookers to do the same, and feel their way into your painting. When you let go of the outer appearance of things, delivered by the eyes, the body is the first thing you have in common with your onlookers.
