Love or Hate Abstract Art?

Abstract paintings are for everyone. Some abstract canvases will appeal to you more than others, but people mistakenly think that if they didn’t like an abstract painting they’ve seen hanging in an art gallery, they must hate all abstracts.


The beauty of modern abstract paintings is that you can interpret them. Abstracts can have deep meaning, or just be about the color and brush movement on canvas that appeals to you. With modern canvases you don’t have to have an art degree to know what you like. If you feel revitalized and rejuvenated when you look at a particular abstract wall hanging, then it has just the right combination of color, movement of brush across the canvas and texture to drawn you in. 

Abstracts are not only for modern contemporary spaces. The right abstracts can go anywhere to create a breathtaking focal point. You can also bring together mismatched furniture pieces with an abstract painting hanging nearby, or update underwhelming and neutral decor by using an abstract to make the space pop with color.

The abstract painting Sunlight Through the Trees shown above is a textured acrylic in green, blue, red, orange and yellow. Paint was applied thickly in this modern abstract where sunlight bleeds through the trees’ thick foliage casting a glow around the trees. This original wall hanging measures 18” x 24”.
