modern abstract art
We, the artists of Art-abstract would
like to present our art online, and in doing this collectively we
hope to offer the aficionado a broad spectrum of modern abstract
art. You will find a variety of techniques, including oil,
acrylics and graphics, on both paper and linen, and even a few
examples of art photography.In spite of presenting
ourselves as a collective, each artist represents a unique
identity in his or her art. These individual styles have developed
during the many years we have been working as artists.Nevertheless
we all share the common denominator of abstract art.
E-mails and telephone numbers can be found on the
individual page of each artist.
The artists introduced briefly
* Concerning her subjects she is most often struck by a
simple and concentrated image based on everyday scenes: a small
enclosed town garden, a view across plain fens lined with thin
trees set out against the sky, a recently stripped building around
the corner on the verge of demolition. These images generate whole
series of small paintings, painted in acryl in a modern pictorial
language of sturdy forms and planes. She favours acrylic paint
because she likes to work fast and to put layer upon layer.
Recently Els Bannenberg strikes a softer note and her palette has
turned more subdued. Thus her newest paintings are intimate with
some robust planes intermingled with subtle shifts in tone.
Photographs are often the starting point for a new series of
paintings, though sometimes her photographs have independent
lives. She has an eye for geometrical situations.
Vincent van Oss;
abstract art in modern forms.
* Vincent's art is both definitely modern and strictly
abstract. He plays with pure form, with colours as a starting
point. Vincent cuts out templates with the power of association.
He composes the painting by inserting these templates via montage
techniques and then painting around them. As a result his art is
no abstraction of reality, but a whole new reality, a modern,
visual reality with a life of it's own.
* To Harry an abstract painting is in essence a flatness, a
visual area with nevertheless solid forms and shapes that exist in
festive minimality. Harry considers abstract art as a domain of
freedom, a freedom of pictorial language. His inspiration lies in
nature. The colour tones of his paintings are soft and subdued,
without any gloss. He sees a painting as an entity of stillness
and simplicity, but with a clear presence and power.
