For admirers in Edinburgh, abstract paintings provide endless hours of viewing pleasure and intellectual stimulation. Here visual representation and accurate depiction of objects, people, and landscape are not used. Instead, colours, shapes, textures, symbols and forms convey the artist’s ideas and emotions. Forms are often simplified down to their basics, with the use of line or colour. This art form is identified with simplicity, purity and a strong spiritual dimension. Though the artist may draw inspiration from the visual world, it is then translated and transformed into a unique idea or expression. Abstract art is also appealing because it enables the viewer to interpret it in multiple ways. In fact, the viewer’s interpretation need not match what the artist had in mind either. Hence, it represents a two-way communication, conversation or dialogue between the artist and the viewer.
In practical terms, abstract paintings in Edinburgh provide amazing elegance, beauty and distinctiveness to your interior spaces. Both geometric and lyrical abstraction offer a take-off point to base your interior decoration theme. Many interior decorators and design professionals use a particular colour or theme taken from an abstract painting as their design inspiration. Furniture, carpets, soft furnishings, upholstery and/or artifacts can be chosen around it. Contact the artist for more information about her work. She creates one of a kind pieces in a variety of mediums including oils, acrylic, mixed media, water based paints. The final coating of glass-effect resin enhances the stunning quality of the painting and the colours.
