Podcast with Mary Beth Shaw: Symbolic Language & Abstract Art

I know nothing about abstract art; I’m a literalist, a story-teller, a plodder and kind of simple in my thinking about a lot of things, so this conversation with Mary Beth was totally fascinating to me. What is symbolic language? And how does it function in abstract art? And how can you work at discovering and/or developing your own? You know it’s in there, but you maybe feel you need a Secret Decoder Ring to really understand what’s going on. Mary Beth is here to help you.
