Amazing Abstracts

All about Abstracts

MANDY RODGER / Auckland
VOLKER HAWIGHORTST / New Plymouth

Abstract art is a popular style at the NZ Art Show, and we’re spoiled for choice this year with so many amazing abstract artists in the online show. We love hearing the stories about what people see in abstract works. Abstract art can be a very challenging style for artists to execute … simplicity is often very difficult to achieve … a thin line, a circle, a brush stroke, a colour palette … they all need to sing with harmony and be perfectly balanced to succeed in their storytelling. There is no wonder that these works are always conversation starters. We’re highlighting 10 artists this week, and we just love how they have a way of complementing each other so well. You can’t go wrong with an abstract piece!

Did you know you can search the artists by style on our website? You can also search by Type, Medium or Theme to find the art of your dreams. The online show is like a great movie….every time you visit it, you’ll see something you didn’t notice the previous time.

Thank you for your continued support, it helps to keep the arts alive and active in NZ
