Fraction is an inquiry into the spatial questions posed by abstraction. This art exhibition aims to explore the enormous influence abstraction and semi-abstraction have had across media. 

We are therefore looking for artists who create striking abstract or semi-abstract compositions driven by emotion, movement and colours. We are interested in works that hold the artist's psyche - memories, conversations, dreams, experiences and any other truthful representation - which would offer a meaningful experience to the viewer. 

Mediums of original 2D and 3D artwork will be included, from paintings, drawings, sculptures, and photography, including digital and video.

Please make sure that you have read through the submission's guidelines and rules properly before submitting your work.

Wall work must not exceed 60cm x 60cm (to include any mount/frame). 

3D work should have a maximum footprint of 60cm x 60cm x 60cm.


  • You can submit up to 10 images, max 4MB each, for consideration.
