abstract figure paintings for sale from the artist


The human shape or form is much painted. Some show an exact likeness, with the subject's characteristics.  Others forget accuracy and focus on the body language in different situations. This is abstraction and is here in these examples of abstract figure paintings. Not one figure is recognisable, the viewer can identify the figure or figures in their own way.  The feeling the shapes and colours convey is the priority and anything goes to achieve that goal.

Some of the abstract figures here have a surreal look, others were inspired by the impact of war

The human form (shape) is one of the most painted subjects, why? Through our lives we spend a lot of time looking at people - our family, friends, relations, colleagues, strangers. We look closely at their facial expression and body language as part of the communication process. We see every emotion in the figures, love, hate, concern, sympathy, jealousy, antipathy, caution and many more. We assess the person’s emotional state so we can respond accordingly. Artists want to capture that emotion so that the painting communicates with you the viewer. These paintings do not represent the figure or even a feature such as an eye, accurately but abstract it to capture the essence – a mixture of expression and body language.
