Abstract Art Therapy
Abstract the word means to separate or withdraw something from something else. The term can be applied to art that is based an object, figure or landscape, where forms have been simplified or schematised.
It is also applicable to art that uses forms, such as geometric shapes or gestural marks, which have no source at all in an external visual reality. Some artists of this 'pure' abstraction have preferred terms such as concrete art or non-objective art. Abstract art is often seen as carrying a moral dimension, in that it can be seen to stand for virtues such as order, purity, simplicity and spirituality. ABSTRACT Art Therapy can be healing and life-enhancing and uses the creative process you adopt in the making of art. Through creating art and talking about it throughout the process, you can increase self-awareness, cope with symptoms of stress, traumatic experiences and also enhance cognitive abilities to enjoy life-affirming pleasures of artistic creativity.
