The modern look is a highly admired form of interior design. The word Modern is a broad term that encompasses many different techniques and styles of design. Abstract Expressionism is one popular designation, which has a profound impact on interior design, particularly in the use of color and materials. The term Abstract Expressionism was first used by Robert Coates in the March issue of the New Yorker in 1936.
Abstract Expressionism does not describe any one particular style, but rather a general attitude. It can be applied to design using famous artist's paintings and rugs inspired by the grand masters. Most painters of the movement favored large canvasses, dramatic colors, and loose brushwork that have motivated designs of modern rugs and other home accessories.
The general opinion is this form of art and rugs are expensive far beyond the budget of the average person. However, one does not have to spend an exorbitant amount of money to own these paintings. Fortunately for the art enthusiast these artists' paintings are available in the form of prints; a 20x 40 inches costs as low as $80.00.To complement this décor one can source modern rugs that are inspired by abstract paintings. At Exquisite Rugs one can source modern rugs stirred by the main exponents of the genre; Pollock, Marc Rothko, Guston, Kline, Newman and Still.
In fact, modern rugs are increasing becoming the choice for a number of designers and buyers alike. When one visits the Museum of Modern Art, Guggenheim or other reputed museum one will be surprised to find modern rugs that are a replica of these paintings. There are a variety of abstract rug designs available based on the works many abstract artists who painted in these styles, for example painters like Kadinski, Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque to name a few.
Exquisite Rugs carries modern rugs with circle design that are distinctive of Kandinsky's work. The importance of circles prefigures the dominant role they would play in many subsequent works, culminating in his cosmic and harmonious image Several Circles. "The circle," claimed Kandinsky, "is the synthesis of the greatest oppositions. It combines the concentric and the eccentric in a single form and in equilibrium. Of the three primary forms, it points most clearly to the fourth dimension."
Jackson Pollock's paintings are all-over patterns of linear details, more or less similar in kind and size rectangles of luminous color placed symmetrically one above the other on a somewhat more opaque vertical ground. Jackson Pollock's mature abstract compositions created by the pouring, dripping, and splattering of paint on large, unstretched canvases are what inspired the modern rugs sold at www.exquisiterugs.com
In short Abstract Expressionist paintings consisted of shapes, lines, and forms meant to create a separate reality from the visual world. Technically, most abstract expressionists paid attention to the surface quality and texture and used large canvases. The modern rugs available at Exquisite Rugs resemble these artists' paintings and are truly a work of art. Visit Exquisite Rugs to find a modern rug.
