Purely Abstract

May 6 - 29, 2021

Online + Gallery Exhibition

“Abstract art places a new world, which on the surface has nothing to do with 'reality,' next to the 'real' world.”
                                                                —Wassily Kandinsky
 

True abstract art not only utilizes flexibility and freedom; it also employs bold uses of color, line, pattern, form, process, mark making and composition.

There are several speculative ideas behind abstract art. While a few have taken the proposal of abstract being 'art for art’s sake' (that artwork should be simply about the creation of striking effects), other people  have proposed art can or should be similar to music; in that just as music is patterns of sound, art’s consequence should be created by patterns of form, color
and/or line.

For this Call for Entry Las Laguna Art Gallery asked artists to provide abstract works in a variety of mediums.

Selected from hundreds of local, national and international submissions, this unique collection of work provides a snapshot into the Abstract works being created today. This exhibition can be seen at our gallery located in Laguna Beach, California as well as viewed online.

Works in this show include Acrylic, Collage, Color Pencil, Digital Photography, Encaustic, Fiber Arts, Glass Art, Mixed Media, New Media, Oil, Pen and Ink, Printmaking, Sculpture, Traditional Photography, and Watercolor.
