According to Aristotle, “the aim of art is not to represent the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance”. As we know, art is deemed subjective; therefore one can choose to accept a piece as art or to reject it. That being said, it seems that in 2016, the most on-trend art to hang on your walls is within the abstract category. Clearly to some, this form of art is not art at all. In fact, it uses color, shapes, and lines to a certain degree of independence from things portrayed in the world. Nonetheless, the beautiful shapes and colors still make for a pretty accent to hang in your home! Basically, abstract art is having a moment this year – with a few specifications that is. The most popular themes are the following:
Blue shades: Art in blue hues seems to be in high demand, and rightfully so, because of its peaceful & serene nature. Try picking an abstract piece with different shades, in order to maximize the soothing feeling and your possibilities to match with the elements in your home.
Patterns: Another popular theme is patterns. Repetitive patterns are also a form of abstract art, and this year these little bursts of pattern are making their way in! If your walls are plain, then patterns will definitely draw the eye. Despite being simplistic artwork, it is definitely a show-stopper!
Statement art: Statement art? I thought abstract art was already making a statement?! A statement piece is one that measure over 5 feet. So when it comes to making a statement, this piece of art will take its fair share of room.
Let your imagination wander as you stare at the abstract pieces hung in your home. It is the perfect home accent! Each piece is unique and will leave you wondering what the artist was thinking about when he/she came up with the design.
