Abstraction has been around for 100 years.
Current practitioners, like Michael Muruste, are not tied to rigid doctrines and are able to practice the subversion of closure, displaying intended imperfections.
While the work often refers to historical styles, the emphasis is on the process.
There is a delight in unexpected outcomes rather than handsome results.
