Gestural Art

In my opinion Gestural Art is usually misunderstood or misinterpreted. Gestural Art is a portrayal of emotion, inner impulses and state of mind.

De Kooning wrote: ‘I paint this way because I can keep putting more and more things into it, drama, anger, pain, love, through your eyes it again becomes an emotion or an idea.’

The idea of Gestural Art is that the ‘artist would physically act out his inner impulses, and that something of his emotion or state of mind would be read by the viewer in the resulting paint marks.’  ( http://www.tate.org.uk/collections/glossary/definition.jsp?entryId=119 )
