Abstract Figurative Art

Abstract Figurative Art

I thought I would try my hand at a few abstract figurative works.  Here is one I painted.  It’s 16 x 20 oil on archival art board.  I became interested in abstractive figurative art after seeing the works of  Kathy Jones and Jylian Gustlin. Click more to see a larger version of the painting.

Abstract Figurative Painting by Greg Fuller

I know I haven’t posted any paintings in a while, but I have been busy working on a series of head and shoulder portraits in oil, all 12 x 12. This is a wonderful size for portraits…

A 12 by 12 portrait is small enough to take down from the wall or mantle and hold in your hands for viewing. It’s large enough to get a about a 75% size head and a still maintain a more or less classical composition. Because the format is square, a group of paintings in this size can make a really appealing arrangement on the wall, and can be arranged in a number of different ways. Yet, a portrait this size will not dominate even a small room.

Here are a few I have painted, with a close-up of one.
