Whoever finds a direction does not find necessarily the destination.
Abstract painting has high demands, because it consists only of color and form and from this it has to develop into a connecting arrangement.
There will be always discussions about what it really is – does it has to come out of an organised form or is abstract a chaotic idea – does it have a base or is it just coming together?
One thing is sure – a clear definite form – is not wanted.
Much is left open to interpretation.

W. Kandinsky (1866 – 1944) went into total abstraction
