They were committed to an expressive art of profound emotionand universal themes. Art created by the Abstract Expressionists was championed for being emphatically American in spirit. "I'm very representational some of the time, and a little all of the time. But when you're working out of your unconscious, figures are bound to emerge.Painting is a state of being.

It broke awayfrom the tradition way of painting that had dominated art in previous decades. Art work were mostly inspired from psychology and had no coherenttheme or central subject to focus on.
