11.3 Summary of chapter 11

I conclude from the above that artists’ experiences are given initial boundaries within abstract shapes that allow for the free flow of ideas. The shapes bring up with them colours, or light, which serve as a link for the transformation of abstractions from ideas into matter. Vivid colours and transparent colours both express the movement from nothing into something.

Once the artist has an initial indication of an idea as well as shapes, colours and matter to use for his or her art work, then a sense of location or place that will shape the final outcome arises. This will be discussed in the following chapter.
