• Depictions of indoor spaces

Interior paintings/drawings typically exclude or de-emphasize the presence of people or pets in order to focus on the architecture, furniture, and objects found within a room or series of rooms.

Artists might choose to paint/draw an interior because they find the space beautiful, imposing, sacred, haunting, mysterious, ridiculous, appalling, etc. An interior can also be used to tell a story about the place’s inhabitant(s). Finally, an artist might simply choose this genre as a vehicle for aesthetic expression, emphasizing abstraction, mark making, distortions, and/or palette exploration.
