Jon Neuse’s basic principles of art are experimentation and artistic judgment. Most of his imagery is abstracted from remembered landscape. He manipulates formal artistic elements to force competing images into lasting and taut relationships. “It’s difficult to make abstract art,” he says, “because there are no – nor should there be – definite rules for how to proceed. For me, art without playfulness is not serious art.” Neuse has taught for over 35 years.
