Abstract in Abstract


Artwork-Zebra Mildliner Brush Pens and Sarasa Clip Gel Retractable Pen on a Hahnemühle Nostalgie Postcard.

Are you looking for:

The Alebrije is a Mexican art form of paper mache or wood carved imaginary animals (if you watched the movie Coco, you know what they are!).

In art, abstract means something that has elements removed from it, so that it departs from reality, so in a sense, alebrijes would be considered abstract.

I wasn’t thinking alebrijes when I started this piece, but as I started picking out a shape with negative space, the frog I created certainly made me think of one. So an abstract in abstract!

Doodlewash prompt ‘insects’. Frogs eat insects. There are insects in this painting, but they are abstract so you probably don’t recognize them, lol. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it.

  1. Nice froggy! I struggle when it comes to defined abstracts. I can’t seem to leave the details out. Thanks for the definition, that may just help.
