Abstract white and black art creates clear contrast in the painting and also to where it is placed. Black and white art is neutral and fits most places. This art is therefore easy to place. The art is also easy to "understand" and it is also easy to feel if it fits in a room or not. It is easy to like or not like, but it can of course vary very much.
Sometimes it is needed a small color area to an abstract black and white art that do not feel ok. When this is made the painting start to live, something happens. But then it is not black and white art.
Examples on black and white abstract art in the Energy Art Gallery. Click on images to see more. More paintings are in the pipeline, but the energy for making these now are not right. (Little too busy with other things now in April 2008)
Abstract art vs Energy Art
There are special rules for paintings being an abstract art. The paintings in the Energy Art Gallery are not made after those rules, therefor the expression abstract art should not be used. But bigger part of the audience do not know about this and for that reason the expression abstract art is used anyway. At Energy Art Gallery all paintings are Energy Art paintings.
No rules for Energy Art
The paintings here are under no rules at all. It is free to do as you want. Maybe one rule is: just do something, do something you want. Put your energy and focus on the painting and feel free, then you have your Energy Art paintings. It is good to have no plan at all, be there and make something and feel good.
Example of abstract black and white art to the right.
Can a painting be just nothing?
Some spectators can feel the energy from a painting, and others not. It is not wrong if most say that the painting is just nothing. That painting is then very special for a small special audience. If you are working a lot with a painting and it is nothing, then it most be something.
Be free with Energy Art
It is a good contrast to paint in the Energy Art way against all the rules you are stucked with in the society. Paint and be free. Maybe do not use acrylic colors. Instead use mud, air, water whatever you want, everything is possible, it is up to you if it feels inspiring and fun. And there are other things to do than paint. The things you like to do, do it, do it and do it as much as possible. Dont do it later, do it now.
Painting as therapy
When being in the "Energy Art" flow you will forget problems. It is a good therapy to paint for everyone. Of course, if you do not like to paint, painting is not for you. But if you are reading this and do not want to paint now, it is a big chance that you want to paint in near future. Maybe the hardest thing to start painting is to take time for it. Anyway the colors and the painting will help you to heal. And using Energy Art technique will make it little easier.

Almost abstract black and white art, but still far from it.
