Abstract Paintings

About This Group


This group is for all abstract paintings in any 2 dimensional image. No photography, black and white, or digital or digitized art. According to Wikipaedia, 'Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art.' In other words, there should be no recognizable or identifiable images or figures. The appeal of abstract paintings lies in their colors and textures. The viewer is left to decide what he or she sees and draw conclusions about the message. Very interesting abstracts can be interpreted in many ways.

Here's what William B. 'Skip' Lawrence says in Palette magazine:

Viewers unfamiliar with contemporary art often have the feeling that a non-objective painting is produced by randomly arranging shapes and colors in an attractive order or by simply smearing a lot of paint around. They may think the word objective refers to the artist's goal or intent and that non-objective work is produced without an idea or purpose. That is not so.

Non objective art is another way to refer to non-representational art. Essentially, the artwork does not represent or depict a person, place or thing in the natural world. In short, the non-objective artist depicts no recognizable things, but that does not imply that the artist had no goal or intent. A non-objective painting can be a graphic response to an actual place, object, person, feeling, or thought but containing no recognizable objects.

--William Lawrence, Palette Magazine, Dec '11-Jan '12, p 23.

Members of this group will be limited to 10 paintings at any one time. Members are then asked to rotate paintings. Remove one and add another as you create new paintings. The goal of this guideline is to keep our gallery interesting and up to date.

Please keep in mind that this website sells prints and cards. No one will want to buy a print or card showing your picture standing against the wall. Nor are they likely to buy the original when it is presented in an amateurish way.

To keep our gallery looking professional and elegant, I will not accept photos of paintings that look unprofessional or without color (black and white).
