Abstract art is a type of art that doesn’t depict a particular object or scene. Instead, abstract artists use shapes, lines, and other elements to create visual images for the viewer to interpret. Black and white abstract paintings are especially popular because they can represent many different things—and they provide a powerful contrast between light and dark.
One way to understand the concept of abstract art is to think of it as a way for an artist to express the ideas and feelings in his or her mind.
Roughly 60% of abstract artists use shapes, lines, and patterns to create their pieces. For example: An artist might choose to use squares or triangles as a way of representing something tangible like buildings or furniture. This can give viewers insight into what inspired them when creating their artwork. (Note that this does not mean that every piece must have recognisable shapes; it just means that there is generally some symbolism involved.)
Perspective is not a new concept, but it’s one that has been used in many different ways throughout history.
For example, perspective can be used to create a sense of depth or movement. It can also be used to create a sense of scale and balance. In this context we’re talking about how artists use lines or colors to imply distance and depth in their work. This can be done by using different sizes of objects (like smaller shapes) at the front of your painting and larger shapes in back; or with shades getting lighter as they recede into space; or even with color intensity decreasing as well as size decreasing.
Texture is a key component of black and white abstract art. It can be found in the paint itself, or in the canvas or paper on which it’s applied. A work of art with interesting texture will draw you closer to examine it closely, allowing you to appreciate how the artist created it.
Here are some examples of artists who use texture well:
- Jackson Pollock used very rough brushes to apply paint in his drip-style paintings; this added an element of movement and energy that makes him one of the most famous artists from that era.
- Yayoi Kusama constantly uses dots, lines and circles as part of her work; these shapes create interesting textures that draw attention because they are so simple but still complex enough to keep your eyes busy finding more details within them (see above).
Color is one of the most powerful tools in any artist’s toolbox and can represent many different things. Color can be used to represent different emotions, moods, feelings and states of mind. It can also be used to communicate a specific time. Black and white abstract art doesn’t use color at all so it allows you to focus on what’s important: the shapes and lines in an image.
We hope we’ve shown you how black and white abstract art is so much more than just shapes and lines. We think that the reason it’s so popular with people is because it allows us to express our own emotions and experiences in a way that words can’t always do justice. The only way you can really know what black and white abstract art means to someone else is by seeing their work up close, looking at all the details, and talking about their process with them directly!
