The Beauty of Abstract Art
Exploring Chris Schillinger’s “Untitled”
Have you ever found yourself mesmerized by a painting, yet unable to describe exactly why? That feeling is often evoked when viewing abstract art, which can captivate audiences with its use of color, movement, and texture. One such piece is “Untitled” by Chris Schillinger, an acrylic on canvas that uses the rule of thirds and the golden ratio to craft an unforgettable image. Let’s explore this painting further.
Artist Chris Schillinger has mastered the ability to create untitled works of art that invite viewers to make their own interpretations. In his acrylic on canvas piece “Untitled”, we see a large-scale abstract painting with bold lines and vibrant colors that evoke emotion without tying it into any specific concept or idea. It is up to each viewer to decide how they want to experience this painting and the emotions it elicits.
What is Abstract Art?
Abstract art refers to artwork that does not represent a specific subject or object in nature. Rather than depicting reality as we know it, abstract art communicates emotion and ideas through color, shape, form, line, texture, and other elements. This style of art has been around for centuries but came into its own in the early 20th century with movements like cubism and surrealism. It can be used to evoke feelings ranging from joy to sadness—and everything in between—with just a few brush strokes.
The Rule of Thirds & The Golden Ratio
Schillinger also sticks firmly to two rules when creating his artwork – the rule of thirds and the golden ratio. The rule of thirds states that an image should be divided into nine equal parts using two equally spaced horizontal lines and two equally spaced vertical lines. This creates four points along each line where important elements should be placed for better visual impact. The golden ratio is another mathematical formula used in photography and design which helps create aesthetically pleasing compositions. By following these rules carefully when creating his artwork, Schillinger ensures that viewers can appreciate the beauty behind his abstract paintings on both an emotional and artistic level. Both principles are evident in “Untitled”; however, they are used subtly so as not to overwhelm viewers with technical details.

Abstract art often leaves viewers speechless because there aren’t any concrete answers to interpret what they’re seeing—just interpretations based on individual experiences and perspectives. In this way abstract art gives us permission to connect with something greater than ourselves while remaining open-ended enough for everyone’s individual paths towards understanding it differently. That’s why works like Chris Schillinger’s “Untitled” will continue captivating us long after we understand its underlying design principles; because no matter how much we learn about them there will always remain something more beneath its surface for us discover anew each time we view it again.
