Figurative Pictures - Tangible Motifs as Common Ground
The term figurative painting or figurative art covers contemporary styles in which things and figures are recognisably depicted. Figurative art differs significantly from both abstract and concrete art, but this does not mean that it could not also contain elements of these two traditions.
As the name suggests, figurative pictures focus on figurative motifs. These can be people and animals as well as automobiles, flowers, cities, or ordinary household objects. Depending on the intention and style of the artist, the depiction of the motif can be naturalistic and realistic or shaped by the filter of the artist's own emotions and worlds of experience. Figurative art does not form a style of its own - rather, numerous styles can be discovered in figurative art. Impressionist depictions with figurative motifs can be found here as well as minimalist or surrealist compositions.
Realistic and Abstract Figurative Painting - Seeing the World Through Different Eyes
Looking at a painting always means engaging with the artist's gaze. Figurative art offers a particularly easy access: the viewer is presented with motifs that they know and can locate in their own life cosmos. Unlike abstract or concrete art, figurative art provides a direct link to the viewer's own reality.
The extent to which the boundaries between the realistic representation of figurative art and the abstract world of the emotional can blur is shown in abstract figurative painting, also known as figurative abstraction. Here, contemporary artists consciously combine stylistic elements in which inner and outer reality merge fluidly. This results in inspiring new pictorial compositions, that allow the viewer to literally wander in two different worlds.
