Abstract art has a special place at the Graphic Art Gallery. Martin, the owner,
is an abstract artist himself who studied abstract art in Europe in the 1960s.
He paints under the name MO and is highly successful. His art hangs in many
modern homes, units, offices and boardrooms in Australia and Europe.
ABSOLUTE ABSTRACT ART BY MO
MO's abstract paintings are free of any objects or forms, as we recognise them
in the real world. Space and perspective are created through the movement of
colour, lines and forms. Based upon the theories of ACTION PAINTING or ABSOLUTE
ABSTRACT ART original forms are invented throughout the progression of each
painting. The artist works to an inner harmony, similar to a composer writing
a piece of music.
MO's creations seem to travel beyond the painting's border, into the unknown,
into eternity. The viewer has to use all their imagination to follow these forms
into the depth and space of MO's paintings. From an early age the artist sought
the unknown. To paint in pure abstract style was a natural succession.
"It is difficult to step out of the conventional, the known. It is the
joy of venture, it is the danger, the risk, which forces one to think."
MO studied abstract art in Germany with Professor Ralf Cavael, a friend and
associate of Kandinsky, who is recognised as the father of abstract art. MO
is the artist name of Martin Ossner, the founder of the Graphic Art Gallery.
Besides his most recent paintings, there are also some rare 1962 action paintings
