Hello and Welcome to the Abstract Art Group!
If you would like to share your abstract art, you can either post in the Show & Tell thread or start your own discussion by scrolling down and clicking on the big blue button that says "Add a Discussion". You will likely get more views and replies if you start your own discussion.

If you would like some advice on a specific work-in-progress, you can either post in the WIP thread or start your own discussion. You will likely get more views and replies if you start your own discussion.

This painting may be considered more surrealistic, than abstract, but I believe it still exhibits some abstract characteristics. I am getting ready to enter this, as well as 2 other paintings (that are NOT abstract) in a local are competition.I call it "Clank". It is a 16" x 20" oil on canvas panel.I enjoyed creating this…READ MORE
Is there such a thing as non-objective art? I am no art historian but I understand that Picasso said no to this question. I am a beginning painter but I think art can be non-objective.

In the three attachments: the first image is 1977 " ESTUARIES" It is made from Berol Prismacolor Pencils.

My plan was to apply two colours to the canvas and work on blending them near the centre. When I stood back to see how it was coming along...where did that come from? No matter how hard you try to make something so abstract that it's unrecognisable, the brain kicks in with a comment like, "Oh, I know what that is."READ MORE
