Art Quote of the Day

“………( third). Abstract art offers a counter to our society’s glut of THINGS. An abstract painting is itself a thing, of course, a part of the material world. But it reminds people of a world without things.  It suggest the old idea, now barely remembered, that there might be a hidden, underlying order, which the transcience of life’s things can’t affect.”

Laurie Fendrich – Why Abstract Painting Still Matters, an essay included in the book, Drawing Us In: How We Experience Visual Art
