• ABSTRACTION: the abstract paintings of Justin Bailey
My abstract paintings are made concurrently with my figurative work. I see them as complementary and there are many links and associations between the two forms of expression. I have experimented with many "styles" of the abstract language which include stripes, squares, circles, drips, splashes, blobs and much more. Quite often I will incorporate buttons and beads and other 3D elements to emphasis the surface. Here are a few examples of my abstract work dating from the mid 1980's.
BELOW: Some examples of the abstract forms I work in and links to my other styles like the figurative and the tunnels.
