A vivid survey of over forty contemporary abstract painters by curator and bestselling author Amber Creswell Bell.
“There is an internal monologue, and a world of decisions and possibilities behind each work that the viewer does not see. Abstraction is akin to learning a new language.” —Ana Young
There is no single neat definition of abstract art. It makes no attempt to represent reality; instead, it has its own visual language using shape, color, and form with no rules. An explosion of creative expression and gestural force, Abstract Painting explores the constantly evolving genre and how it offers unparalleled artistic freedom, inviting deeply personal connection and interpretation from both artist and viewer. Works often straddle a midpoint between recognition and the sensed experience through the materiality of paint encompassing a pastiche of styles. Hardcover, 272 pages.
