Abstract Illusionism is a style of painting that is non-objective. It’s characterized by the use of geometric shapes and lines to create an illusion of space or depth on a two-dimensional canvas.
Abstract Illusionism was first used in the early 1900s by artists like Piet Mondrian, Kazimir Malevich, and Wassily Kandinsky as a way to escape from the constraints of representational art. They wanted to create paintings that were more abstract and free from any real objects or figures.
Barbara Rose coined the term Abstract Illusionism in 1967 when she wrote her article “The New American Painting” for Art International magazine. She argued that Abstract Expressionism had become more conservative than it originally intended because it had turned into a “closed system”.
The phrase was coined separately by Louis K. Meisel to describe an artistic movement that gained recognition in the US in the middle of the 1970s.
In order to achieve the illusion of three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface, the artworks typically used perspective, artificial light sources, and simulated cast shadows in addition to expressionistic and hard-edge abstract painting techniques.
