Art is the medium of expressing the freedom. The abstract artists paint objects ignoring their real shapes; they make colours a central issue, in a sense the colours are allowed to act independently. These artists would use a technique, depicting forms and combination of colours which hardly exist in real world. These artists provoke the viewers response without using conventional forms.
Abstract -by Galope de Caballos
Every painting or an art-piece is an artistic attempt for visual communication. An artist desires to reveal the imagination he or she has in mind. The artist would use the essential characteristics of colours like contrast and Harmony. Putting movement in the shapes, an artist would try infusing liveliness into the painting, allowing the colours to be carry much rebel and independence. While painting, the abstract artist uses all of these tools of the trade. He or she takes help of different forms and colours for recreating the imagination on the canvas.
Abstract artist might not miss the pictorial element in a painting, but he or she depicts the aspect independent of reference you would find in surrounding. Though they would depart completely or partially from the real imagery of actual objects, the freedom the abstract artists experience make them more courageous. In
Art of Abstract Painting
The art movements of romanticism, impressionism and expressionism have greatly affected and positively contributed to the development of abstract art of painting. The master painters who practiced mainly the post modernism style of painting were Paul Gauguin, George Seurat, Paul Cezanne and Van Gogh they had very big pool of the follower artists. The paintings and the styles of these painters have enormous effect on the art of abstract painting.
While holding the palate of bright and cool colours in hand, the abstract painter wanders with imagination. Here an artist tries simplifying the object to paint. While doing so he would simply exaggerate the size of the object to be painted. He might reshape the form in such a way that it would make almost impossible for the viewers to identify it without the help of a person who knows about the art of abstract painting deeply. Freedom is the word an artist feels while applying the shades and hues of paints. And he or she emits that feeling through the language of brushstrokes and colours. These are the artists who let their artistic prowess to fly in a limitless sky and descend on a wonderful piece of art.
Each artist has different views of the world. Instead considering the physical appearance of objects, the abstract artists emphasize on lines, colours and geometrical forms of the objects. While dealing with interrelationship of these aspects, an abstract painter keeps exploring until he or she succeeds in extracting the characteristics of a particular subject. For an example these artists would investigate about the objects regarding several core issues, say the anger or joy embedded within a face of a man or a woman. The artworks of abstract artists are called as ‘non-representational art’, too. It is because while working under this style of painting, an artist turns more adventurous in using colours and lines, defining the shapes of objects differently.
The subjects of painting in abstract style of painting remain same as in the other styles. Abstract artists chose subjects like still life, landscapes and figures, buildings and flowers. But here the artists create difference while interpreting these subjects in relationship of their colours and shapes. In the case of using media there is no difference. Abstractionists use all the means available in the field of art of painting, like watercolour, oil, pastel, gouache acrylic and collage.
After using all the techniques in the above forms and manners, the abstractionist create delightful world through the stunning images they conceive in their minds and transliterate on canvases. In the above paintings, the German-Austrian artist Dagmar Anders has tried depicting the inner characteristics of a man. Here the colours scheme applied and the bold strokes and lines painted tell much about the nature of the person so portrayed.

In the field of art it was a rule that any new form or style would be conceived and given birth in European countries; and then it would travel to rest of the world. There was an artist who did the reverse. The abstract paintings done by Georgia O'Keefe (November 15, 1887 – March 6, 1986) got so much recognition that their fame travelled beyond the boundaries of

In the above painting we can see how she had achieved the level of abstract representation of colours. It is amazing to see that how she has painted the inner-self, the soul of the colours blue and green. Every inch of the frame is painted with perfection of a sculpture. The different shades of green and blue are revealed at their maximum potential. We can feel the dance of the colours on canvas. That is why the painting is rightly titled as “Blue and Green Music”. This painting was done in the year 1921.
