This beautiful abstract art is the development of artist Amy Stillman's vision of human couples and their interactions.

Gorgeous Abstract Art from Portraits

On view at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C. and titled “Directions: Amy Sillman, Third Person Singular,” it's interesting to see how different artists come to their results. For this series, Ms. Stillman starts with realistic portraits of couples and then creates multiple sketches from memory until she arrives at these thought-provoking abstract paintings.
