Original Abstract Paintings

Abstract art is a free articulation of inward feelings that can be communicated on a canvas using lines, shapes, hues and composition. To be original, abstract paintings must depict objects that have been “disconnected” from scenes, city scenes and seascapes, and completely disengaged from any reference to our visual world. These for the most part are communicated with arbitrary sprinkles of paint, shapes and lines. Large scale abstract works of art have the tendency to have a bolder explanation in enlivened spaces and influence the room climate as well as liveliness.
