Figurative Paintings are showcased in our first juried show on CFAI.co. From Wikipedia you read “”Figurative art” is often defined in contrast to abstract art:
Since the arrival of abstract art the term figurative has been used to refer to any form of modern art that retains strong references to the real world.
Painting and sculpture can therefore be divided into the categories of figurative, representational and abstract, although, strictly speaking, abstract art is derived (or abstracted) from a figurative or other natural source. However, “abstract” is sometimes used as a synonym for non-representational art and non-objective art, i.e. art which has no derivation from figures or objects.
Figurative art is not synonymous with “art that represents the human figure,” although human and animal figures are frequent subjects.”
In this show we had a strong representation of the human figure. Please enjoy the submissions and the juried winners of the show.
