Abstract designs reveal underlying meanings through the emboldened use of color and texture, often inspired by landscapes or water. Geometricbased compositions also maintain a strong presence this season, marked by blurred brush strokes and paint-drip effects.
Crafted in the USA, Surya's LJ wall art series includes this contemporary design spotlighting broad swaths of color.
Softly swirling pastels add another layer of dimension to an abstract dot pattern in Howard Elliott's blonde maple-framed design with mirror inset ($1,050).
A textured plaque invokes the colors of a stormy sea in Paragon's Life Aquatic, finished without glass in a champagne frame with brushed dark gold accents ($119 each, set of three).
Aerial Abstract, exclusive to W. King Ambler by artist Mark Fetty, conveys a sense of optimism with boldly saturated, hand-deckled prints framed in hammered silver.
