Best of Abstract Expressionism: Ralph Stanton

ART EDIT PRESENTS A SELECTION OF ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST ARTISTS AT THE TOP OF THEIR GAME.

Sydney-based artist Ralph Stanton knows that when creating, he often has to get out of his own way and let the work speak for itself. “Mostly I have no clear idea when I begin a work, and it can – and does – take on a life of its own. Often I struggle between where I think the artwork should go and where it leads,” says the artist. Colourful and artfully textured, Ralph’s works carry an emotional weight that speaks to the viewer. “I imagine my work akin to music, speaking directly to the viewer, often suggesting unnamed emotional states.” He does not try to convey a message with his work – that is left up to the viewer.
