Natural abstraction is a concept in art that involves drawing inspiration from the natural world to create abstract works of art. It involves using natural forms, patterns, and colors to create compositions that are not meant to be representational or realistic. Instead, they aim to capture the essence of nature and its organic beauty in a way that transcends literal representation.Art Bar Grenada through ABG Gallery introduces “Natural Abstraction” as our 1st virtual art exhibition. This theme should inspire artists to create works that explore the natural world through abstraction. Artwork could involve using organic forms, such as plants, trees, and landscapes, as a starting point for creating abstract compositions. Artists may also draw inspiration from natural patterns and textures, such as the intricate veins of a leaf, the swirling motion of a river, or the crackled surface of a rock.The use of color is also an important aspect of natural abstraction. Earthy tones, such as browns, greens, and blues, are often used to create a sense of natural harmony and balance. However, artists may also experiment with brighter or more contrasting colors to create a more dynamic composition.Overall, this art exhibition will showcase a wide range of styles and techniques, from minimalist, geometric compositions to more organic, gestural works. It will offer a unique perspective on the natural world, encouraging viewers to appreciate the beauty and complexity of nature in a new and abstract way.This exhibition will be presented on http://www.artbargrenada.com/ABG-gallery and as a 3D virtual walk-through.
