A Brief Description of the First Ab Ex Artists

Outlaws of the art world / beatniks of color / renegades of content / shape shifters of consciousness with oil and turpentine.

An alchemy born in smoke filled studios, composing a brave, nascent language even they, at times, did not understand / questioning value and substance / ultimately liberating the future from the order of realism and dunking us into the lyrical chaos of the unknown.

We would not be able to paint like we do without these early warriors, slashing a path through a foreign territory known as our interiority / giving us permission to seek the arcane in the subconscious / shushing  our selves  and allowing our daemons to speak.
