Abstraction: Call for Submissions
deadline: Monday, May 24, 2021
“Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot see physically with his eyes….Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an exploration into unknown areas.”
― Arshile Gorky
Abstract art is an incredibly broad visual genre, encompassing any work that has been untethered from realistic representation. Artists have approached it in many ways and with many different motivations, for example by trying to recreate the natural world in abstracted ways, such as Mondrian, or to connect with the metaphysical or spiritual, such as Hilma af Klint.
