"Abstract allows man to see with his mind what he cannot see physically with his eyes. Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an exploration into unknown areas." -Arshile Gorky

In this competition, we encourage entries from all 2-D and 3-D artists. The Abstract theme is considered to be any art that does not attempt to represent external reality, but seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, form, colors, and textures.
