On Abstraction: Things You Can't Tell Just by Looking at Us

Within this text, you’ll find the makings of a new series called The Flow, where contributors are invited to create call and responses between artworks, art movements, or artists with another outlet or field they have an existing relationship with. This is an exercise in expanding entry points and access for appreciating and connecting to works of art and artists by seeing art from multiple vantage points and perspectives.  An audio recording is available at the bottom of this text; please follow along.
