Rafael Ruz is a prominent figure of Abstraction. Abstraction, in literal terms, means distancing or suppressing one thing from another. When it comes to the visual arts, it can be understood as creating an artwork which moves away from a true representational reference point. The movement was born in the early 20th century, and can be seen as an attempt to release the artist’s creative energy, through freedom and constant self-renewal. In abstract artworks, the object is simplified, with the use of colours and textures, thus creating a fundamentally new perception of reality. Abstract art can be traced back to Impressionism, and paved the way for a significant number of movements, including Cubism, Surrealism, or Abstract Expressionism, which is still considered to be one the most powerful contemporary art movements. Some critically acclaimed artists renowned for their contribution to Abstraction include Wassily Kandinsky, Jackson Pollock, or Pablo Picasso.
