Abstract Expressionism

Today A and I had a date–yes just the two of us–and we visited the Art Gallery of Ontario to see the preview of an exhibit of abstract expressionism from the MOMA in NY. There’s so much to say about it and I just don’t have time right now, but I have to mention the photography of Aaron Suskind. That he walked around the world and saw these shapes amazes me. What eyes! Here’s a link.

He reminded me of Jean at Tasting Rhubarb, less abstract, but gifted eyes. Have a look here, too.



Lilian is the author of Web of Angels, a novel about a mom with DID (multiple personalities). She's also the author of the historical novels, The River Midnight and The Singing Fire, about secrets, friendship and motherhood in 19th century Poland and London.

  1. Just my cup of tea … thanks for reminding me of Aaron Siskind. He deserves a closer look (especially his abstract work). tms

    1. You’re welcome and thanks for stopping by here! I had a quick look at your blog–interesting photos, I’ll have a closer look when I have a bit more time. I esp like 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th photos of Aqua.

  2. I envy that artistic eye. It’s amazing how some people are able to walk through the world and just see things a little bit more interesting than the rest of us.
