Emerging Abstract Painting

“Abstraction is real, probably more real than nature,” Josef Albers, a pioneering abstractionist, once said. “I prefer to see with closed eyes.” Much like Albers, many of today’s emerging artists escape into abstraction, inventing new ways to paint and experience the basic elements of line, form, and color. Below, discover abstract paintings by up-and-coming artists who have achieved art-world acclaim through group shows at prominent institutions, representation by influential young galleries, reviews by major art publications, or inclusion in international biennials.
