2012 Winners

Abstract Artist Gallery is pleased to announce the results from our 2012 International Abstract Art Contest. Thank you to all those that partook.  Thank you for making our website more diverse and exciting, helping us spread the word and present the very best abstract art to the world.  All of the entries were excellent in that they were true portrayals of inner emotion and consciousness.  Each artist has something unique to offer whether they were selected among the top few or not, and many will be added to the gallery over the next few months.  Without further ado, this years winners are…

A personal commentary by Jaison Cianelli

Looking at Rebecca Klementovich’s work I feel a sense of belonging, an attraction pulled by an inner sense.  Her color palette is a soothing reminder of nature.  But the beauty and etheric qualities of her artwork cannot be explained by color, form, and texture alone.  It’s as if her state of mind, her joy imbued with the atmosphere of her setting, has entered her work.  Her work is fun and cleverly orchestrated to tease the imagination and remind you just how connected the unseen world of energy really is.  Rebecca uses the term “blinking painting” to describe this type of artwork, where one has the potential to experience a flash of energy when immersed in the actual painting using one’s peripheral vision.  It’s an even deeper and mysterious aspect to her work that I applaud her for.
