What is Abstract Art?

Abstract art is a genre of art that does not attempt to represent or recreate visual reality. An abstract artist is not attempting to create realistic images of a specific subject. Instead, abstract art is concerned with the creation of an image that can be interpreted in many different ways depending on the viewer. An abstract artist creates a composition using shapes, colors, lines, textures and values that are not fully drawn from how things look in real life. Although the artist may use certain elements from everyday life in their piece (such as eyes, or the wing of a bird), the goal is to apply your own imaginative spin to the piece and create something that is not entirely based in reality.

The idea behind abstract art is to create something new that may or may not have an obvious connection to something we see in our everyday lives. The artist's skill lies in expressing concepts or ideas through shapes, forms and colors on canvas or paper without fully relying on recognizable objects as references for the viewers' understanding.

Ode to the Blues by Sana Waqar Khan: This whimsical abstract expressionist painting is all about embracing the blues, both physically as a color and metaphorically as emotions of sadness and melancholy. Sana has applied the paint using only palette knives and plastic paint spreaders rather than brushes to create layers of flat colors.

Portal by Thomas Lenz: This unique painting has been created using bright UV reflective colors which glow coming out of the deep blue background.

The abstract nature of this concept is conveyed perfectly by the abstract nature of the painting.
