Abstract art – non-objective painting

Abstract art has been one of the most important styles since the beginning of the last century. It has extensively shaped the concept of art. In abstract art, artists move away from naturalism and paint your paintings non-objective, that is, abstract. Abstract art is thus also called non-objective art.

It breaks away from the reproduction in your representational and describes a spiritual – visionary world under the combination of colors and shapes and the analysis of your means.

Whether people or objects – everything is represented only in implied & non-representational form. The further development of photography enabled a completely new depiction of the real world and made representational painting almost obsolete.

Around 1900, artists began to implement abstract motifs, detached from the representationalism that had prevailed until then. Inspired by metaphysical, new musical & scientific currents. Classical protagonists of this time such as Kandinsky, Delaunay, Marc or Macke dealt with a new painterly reality. The representation of spiritual inner worlds, feelings, emotions, creativity is now the focus of the creative process.

Modern abstract art is distinguished by the absolute abstraction of the visible world on color and light impressions, originated in expressionism and non-objective art, originated in cubism to construct paintings geometrically.

Making the immaterial visible

In all eras, artists were in search of your own style, a new way of expression, to break away from existing subjects and find new interpretations of perception. From the 20th century through achievements of science, architecture, psychoanalysis, fashion and politics a new openness to see the world emerged.

Whereas in earlier periods of art history painting tended to depict people, landscapes and arrangements in a naturalistic way, now artists made the imaginary, thoughts and feelings visible. The artist now almost abandons the structures of reality in the creation of new abstract paintings and sometimes provides only a few clues to its origin.


Abstract art as the basis of new trends

Abstract painting has been one of the most popular styles since the beginning of the last century. It has completely changed the concept and approach to art itself. In abstract art, artists move away from the naturalistic image of nature and compose your paintings non-representational or in an implied form. Abstract art is also called non-objective art.

The composition and arrangement of colors and the basic structure by means of geometric surfaces, lines and figures were from now on the central point of painting.  With new technical achievements of the 20th and 21st century new possibilities of art production developed. Abstract art is a basis of newer art styles such as Pop Art, Conceptual Art, Art – Happening as well as Fluxus, Video – and Digital Art and Installation Art.

The interpretation of abstract art

The viewer of abstract art is encouraged to deal in depth with the image and to question the motifs. To understand the core and the emergence of an abstract painting, the image – viewer can deal with the work of the artist and approach. However, it is up to the viewer, and that is the beauty of abstract art, to interpret the image freely and himself.

However, the concept and approach are rarely presented today. There is usually only an indirect reference to nature and reality. Artists today are often concerned with the representation of inner worlds, which are at the same time charming and versatile.

If you are interested in an abstract painting in oil or acrylic, I can gladly provide you with a deeper discourse on the motif and approach to get a deeper access to my visual world and philosophy.

As an artist, I offer you an exciting selection of abstract works, which invite you as a viewer to free interpretation, discovery and always see something new.


New color and shape arrangements

One could almost say that abstract art has acquired a new function by becoming a field of experimentation for new color and form arrangements. But how does the artist come to make experiments in the first place? Why can’t he be satisfied with simply sitting down in nature and painting as best he can?

The answer is as follows: Modernist art has lost its orientation precisely because artists have experienced that the seemingly simple demand “paint what you see” has become unattractive.

This may sound paradoxical, but it is quite understandable in view of the fast-moving media and new forms of visual language. Photos, Instagram and television are now enough for a clear naturalism. Rather, it still seems appealing to depict inner values and worlds and actually leave it to the viewer to let the complete picture emerge in the mind.

Contemporary abstract art

Modern art and contemporary art are often confused with each other. In principle, modern art is classified with the styles of impressionism (from 1874) to abstract expressionism (late 1960s). Contemporary art also begins at about this time and continues to this day.

In contemporary exhibitions and art fairs today, mainly abstract painting of the present is shown. At the Venice Biennale and the Dokumenta in Kassel, for example, political and cultural problems are artistically questioned. International galleries present their artists at art fairs around the world.
