After the non-exhibit of March(2020) and the completion of the Holo-Grid Series, I've been preoccupied with ideas for a new series, and further expressing/exploring emerging personal attitudes; ideas concerning the inter-communicational phenomenon that exists between abstract images and their beholders. Presently, attempts to suggest what may transpire between an abstract image and whomever observes it, must remain 'indeterminate', until the affects of a composition are experienced; felt. It is my purpose to awaken the abstracting capacity and the aesthetic arousal 0f an "observer"; an "experiencing beholder"! (See Adlib Viewpoints; 'The Beholder's Share'.)
'Beholder', archaic as this word sounds, implies accurately what an ideal observer would do. That is, hold an image in awareness, for longer than a passing glance. That also is, to avoid rapid classification or dismissal based on limited knowledge or unfamiliarity. That is, also, curtailing curiosity prematurely. Abstract images, whether by masters or emerging artists, would benefit from renewed, sustained attention, as would benefit their viewers. In past Adlib Viewpoints, attempts were made by me, to clarify the process of 'abstracting' to 'make meaning', of art in general and to become familiar with an innate learning process; known as "Consciousness of Abstracting" to students of General Semantics. Those attempts were made in an effort to inform observers of my creative process, Improvisational Art; an invitation to visually improvise, actively make meaning and personalize my compositions. What follows is, I hope, a warmer, friendlier way to express what art can mean to a beholder: Namely, aesthetic arousal, and more broadly, Experiential Learning, specifically as regards Art and Personal Development!!
\\ How then? One may................. closely search a composition to unfold ......... notice details that recompose into the unity of a piece .......... become aware of explicit newness & novelty ........... allow for a revelatory encounter ............. for subtle indeterminate feelings (affects) to arise ............ open to that dreamy aura that accompanies non-objective images ............. imagine the experience of visually CO-CREATING and express your CO-CREATIVITY each time you view new or unfamiliar art works.

Also, by reading "The Beholders' Share": which opens to possibilities for expanding and understanding, more deeply, the inter-subjectivity shared between artists and observers"
