Abstract art-a state of flux
Sometimes there's a need to show speed of movement, a rapidly changing shape or form. But we're not depicting a galloping horse or a rushing mob. The movement is being depicted in an abstract form, a notation, a symbolic roving line. A spontaneous gesture. A fleeting thought. The art shown depicts a constant changing of form, a tumbleweed of lines and color. But it is not an attempt to depict a tumbleweed. Goethe in another context, though relevant, said, " In such compositions what really matters is that the single masses should be clear and significant, while the whole remains incommensurable; and by that reason, like an unsolved problem, constantly draws mankind to study it again and again."
