Linear Abstraction
by Emma Coyle


Linear Abstraction is the artists first combined abstract series exploring abstraction within painting. Inspired by themes and idea within American Pop art and Abstract Expressionism. Each piece is a combined artwork consisting of an acrylic painting on board and a plaster form also painted in acrylic. Each paintings image is taken from the artist's personal photography of garden flowers circa 2009. Each photograph is minimally drawn, taking away the 3 dimensional aspect of photography and blown up to size on the board. A section of this painting is then taken and worked into a 3 dimensional hollow case plaster form. Both pieces are then painted in the same colours making the artwork as one whole piece, changing the viewers’ attention to the space in which they stand not just focusing on the walls of their environment. The series questions the ideas of what can be considered a painting? How abstract painting is evolving within the art world? And not only how have art genre's developed in history but how artists can still work on progressing the initial ideas within different art practices to create something of their own. The 2D painting is 109x84x5cm and the 3D painting is 25x28x13cm.
