Abstract Concepts in Art

Posted: March 26, 2021 in Uncategorized

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. That is so true especially when we speak of abstract concepts that are not easily defined. Think about love. What is love? How would you define it? How would you express it? Define it verbally and the words fail to capture the essence, but show me a picture of a man and a woman looking each other in the eye, or a smiling mother holding her baby and love becomes apparent. 

So think of these concepts, How would you express them?

  • Virtually any emotion
  • Faithfulness
  • Loyalty
  • Grace
  • Patience
  • Joy
  • Vanity
  • Sin
  • Vulerability
  • Weakness
  • Imagination
  • Talent

One thing I would suggest is you start with prayer, then look at all the Bible has to say on the topic and create an expression of the concept. Take this on and try it for yourself and as always share a link to your work in the comments/ I’d love to see what you do with this one.
