Abstract Expressionism

Abstract expressionism is where the artist uses color and form to show his/her feelings. Unlike other forms of art, expressionism doesn't have any one focal point. This style showed up around 1940. Many consider Jackson Pollock to be the "father" of this movement. This movement shifted the center of the art world from Paris to New York. Many other artists have used this style as well, including me. (:
I will be putting my artwork up as well as other various female artists.
