Geometric Abstraction

Geometric Abstraction

Geometric abstraction is a type of abstract art that uses geometric shapes, often placed in non-realistic space, to create non-objective compositions.

Geometric abstraction is an abstract art form that combines geometric, ‘hard-edge’, or linear shapes. When these geometric shapes are arranged within a two-dimensional space, such as a canvas, and don't represent specific ideas or real-life objects, they may be referred to as constructive or concrete.
