Trapunto Paintings Abstracts (45)

Pacita Abad's abstract trapunto paintings beckons the viewer with their considerable visual power, demanding to be looked at, insisting on being noticed. Although in the early part of her artistic career Pacita focused on figurative, and socio political commentary paintings, at the same time she was always working on abstract compositions and experimenting with techniques, colors, textures and surfaces. Her two trapunto painting abstract series, "Oriental Abstractions" and "Abstract Emotions" both developed from her inquisitive nature.
