Abstraction of Representational Art-Orchids in Abstract


Orchids in Abstract
Acrylic on wrapped canvas
on wood stretcher bars,
25.5 by 30.6 by 1.9 cm, 10 by 12 by 0.75 inches,

I am a representational artist and this is one of my few attempts at abstract art. I liked the shapes of the orchids and wanted to paint them in an abstract theme. I believe I achieved drama by painting the flowers close to the picture plane and in a frontal view. I also wanted to achieve animation and movement with the repetition of the petals and colors. Others have told me that I also achieved unity. These elements and principles of art also apply to other forms of art, i.e. representational art. I do not know if the painting is attractive and exciting to others but I hope you enjoy this work.
