abstract thinking

Having studied art history and fine arts for four years as an undergrad, I’ve amassed quite a collection of favorites: Cy Twombly, Frank Stella, Elizabeth Peyton, just to name a few.  But it wasn’t until after school that I began seeking out lesser known artists, each with their own unique perspective and technique.

These days, there’s nothing I love more than hunting down artists with little etsy or personal web shops.  The list could go on forever but lately I’ve been all about abstracts.  Here’s the short list of my current favorites.  If you’ve been looking for the perfect piece to complete your home, here’s hoping you find something among these talented folks!

p.s. apologies for the lack of post yesterday, I’ve got some big news coming your way in the next several weeks!

    I just discovered Caroline Wright not too long ago, love her work. Have you seen the Lines Ballet pieces? Those are my favorite. Also love the Shane McAdams, thanks for the introduction! Absolutely stunned when I clicked over and saw that piece was done with a ballpoint pen!
