The artist’s work starts from something that can be real or abstract, although anything abstract, for the mind still has, at least, some qualities of real. A true pursue of abstraction in art is unquestionably explorative and speculative to extent that consciously excludes systematic or logical concretizations. This paper covers a period of exploration that resulted in a series of art pieces reflecting some of the period\'s symbolic aspects with the goal to approach author’s own abstract ideas with a degree of logic. Nesslessness is the term author associates with explorations that help articulating practice of the abstract art and its creative foundations. The definition of nesslessness is \'a meta-process of grasping desire for material factuality rather than abstraction\'. Through nesslessness, the aspects previously considered to be detached from a particular instance begin to compound concurrently. It is a flow initiating from a state of conception to a material one. One of the aims of research has been to ponder into the mind of a creative artist, where comprehensive processing of an idea occurs before it takes shape in a material form.
