Over the course of their careers, revolutionary minds such as Pollock, Picasso, Richter and Twombly each developed a unique abstract style. Whether iconic paint splashes, geometric fragments, pencil scratches or squeegees, each of these masters can be identified by their mark-making, in essence, the fingerprint they put on the world of art.
How do you define and create your abstract work? Whether you are interested in fragmenting form, expressing emotional resonance, or psychological state- we want to see the world the way YOU see it.
Even though abstract art had its start in painting and drawing, it continues to destabilize the structure of all art forms it presents itself in. From the goopy sculptures of Rachel Harrison to the geometric oddities of David Altmejd, abstraction is now an idea for creation instead of a set of rules to create from.
What does this all mean? It means DON’T LIMIT yourself to any medium. Express yourself however you wish. All that’s required, is your work must be considered ABSTRACT in terms of STYLE, when you upload your work to Showdown.
We hope that you’ll participate in the Abstract Showdown and look forward to your submissions. Details on judges, dates and more coming soon.
