Abstract paintings and the pursuit of abstract art emerged towards the beginning of the 20th century. With the developments of avant-garde art movements, abstract art was born out of a desire to approach art in a non-figurative and non-objective manner. Rejecting realist representation and the traditions of realist painting, abstract painting has since endured as one of the most prominent and influential styles in modern art.
Abstract art is manifested in so many other different styles. It spans Cubism, Minimalism, and everything in between. Today, abstract paintings stand amongst some of the most famous artworks in the world. From Rothko’s iconic colour field paintings and Pollock’s vast Abstract Expressionist pieces, to Mondrian’s geometric abstract works, abstract art offers painters, makers and artists an open-ended sense of freedom. Browse through our collection and discover the sheer depth of style, scale, colour and brushwork our abstract artists work across.
Victoria Achache focuses on colour and the interaction of colour throughout her abstract paintings. The seemingly arbitrary placement of colour works in harmony with the figurative elements of her work, creating mood in each of her paintings. At times, the abstract and the figurative collide and in Cumulus, Victoria shows a dramatic pairing of abstract colour and space from which mysterious figures seem to emerge. Victoria captures an element of capriciousness and spontaneity in each of her pieces, attesting to the unpredictable imaginative depths of abstract art.
Daisy Cook works with oil paint and collage to create her geometric abstract paintings. Often incorporating elements of landscape painting into her compositions, she references the interactions between land, sea and sky in her angular shapes. Daisy primarily adheres to a pale and neutral palette, characterised by pale blues, light greens and misty greys. When planning her works, Daisy uses photography as a reference point, however her final artworks capture imagined places.
