The Power of Colour
Colour is key, whether you are selecting a new car, a fresh colour scheme for your home, or an item of clothing. It is something which we give great consideration to, and with good reason.
Russian painter and theorist Wassily Kandinksy is purported to have once said “colour is a power which directly influences the soul”, and therefore has the ability to influence our moods, emotions and even actions.

What is Abstract Art?
The practice of abstraction in art refers to the use of 'gestures' to suggest the subject rather than creating accurate depictions of imagery. It can apply to different components of a piece, including colour, shape, line and composition.
The origins of abstract art began very early in the 1900s, during the Modern Art movement, when rapid technological advancements in the West meant that artists needed to find new ways to represent the world around them and its hastily changing ideas and possibilities.
