Alluring Abstract Paintings
Abstract art paintings employ the visual language of shape, form, color as well as line to create compositions that may or may not exist independent of references to the real world. The creation of the idea, when such paintings are looked at, takes place in the mind of the viewer which is what makes them so intriguing. In more ways than one, abstract paintings make you think outside the box and could even bring unaddressed emotions to the surface. The powerful effect these paintings have on the beholder is the reason they are extremely well received.
Abstraction in art has existed since early times in many cultures around the globe. For instance, art in early civilizations, whether on pottery, textiles, inscriptions or paintings on rocks used rudimentary, geometric or even linear forms which either had a symbolic or decorative purpose. Its appeal lies in the fact that the viewer can find their own meaning as the art itself goes beyond having an obvious meaning. Through the challenge of personal interpretation, abstract paintings nudge the mind into opening up and considering new perspectives that were previously beyond its reach. On Pisarto, you can now buy abstract paintings and have the pleasure of them adorning the walls of your home or office.
All About Abstract Art
If you are new to this very popular form of art, these fun facts will surely help you learn more.
Abstract art can be found both in paintings as well as sculpture. However, some works of art which are partly abstract and partly representational also exist. Purely abstract art can be said to be a twentieth-century invention. It can trace its roots back to early forms of modern art. But other than that, it is probably the only movement of its kind that is authentically modern.
Kazimir Malevich is credited for achieving complete abstraction in his paintings when he presented an entirely black square as part of his collection in 1913. He was a part of the Suprematist, an art movement based on simple geometric shapes. Art paintings that are based on geometry are what is referred to as ‘geometric abstraction’.
The Effect on the Human Brain
Neuroaesthetics is an emerging discipline that was founded just over a decade ago in order to bring scientific objectivity to the study of art. When it comes to abstract paintings, many studies theorised about the manipulation of objects depicted in painting and its effect on our brains. It was found that our minds are constantly aware of the specific arrangement of such pieces within abstract paintings and so can sense the artist’s intention behind it. This simply means that even when we do not perceive the painting to be saying something, we subconsciously are.
