@bijutoha,
Abstract art varies. Some famous paintings are obviously abstract, classics of the mode, but there is abstraction in a lot of art, not only in paintings.

It is worth reading about, online, library, individual books.

I'm sorry I posted the 'huh', not meant for you.

@bijutoha,
Abstract art was created at the cusp of the 20th century. It is an art style that breaks away from drawing art as it is represented in real life. Abstract art is about exploring form and color. One could even venture to say that it is artists drawing how they feel. Abstract art isn't about making perfect copies of real life. Sometimes, it isn't even about giving the impression of real life without all the little details. In fact, depending on the artists, abstract art became about the process itself. Representational would mean that you draw what you see. Abstract art is far from that concept.

@bijutoha,
Abstract Art is a way of creating art (Paintings in my case) that attempt to convey emotion, a meaning or a story through non literal means like recognizable figures or items, Instead artists that work in abstract paintting tend to use gestured brush strokes, broken shapes and suggestions of colour, tone and depth. In essence they are trying to convey a message through their art without saying it directly.

@bijutoha,
Does not describe the art of the natural world, but through the shape and color to the subjective way to express.

Painting totally abstract art is very difficult, because the mind always looks for patterns or something recognizable. If you look up at the sky at night you see thousands or tens of thousands of stars, or if you live in the city maybe just hundreds, the mind insists on finding patterns called constellations.

Then how does the mind relate to something that is totally abstract? Music, if you ignore the lyrics, is totally abstract, even the most programmatic music.

The visual is dominant, especially in a patriarchal, male-dominated culture like ours, and somehow the visual is connected to the intellect, once again male dominated. Now, to reject or transend the intellect meets with fierce resistance both from the other and oneself. How does one deal with this? That's what happened around the war with the advent of the abstract expressionists. Even now days while visiting an abstract Art Museum, I've heard people say, "my child could do that."
And I think, yeah, but he didn't. Anybody can copy, but it takes a free, open, creative mind to be the first.

@bijutoha,
Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect

Of course there different stages of abstract art. A lot of art has some abstraction . Pure abstract art has nothing recognizable. The proper way to view it is to not try to analyze or even think about it.

Abstract art is the expression of religion of our time. Abstract art is meditation. With pure religion there are no images formed. The religion and the world are one. With abstract art there are also no images formed. There it is direct to the emotions, the feelings.

@bijutoha,
Of course,there is no abusoluteanswer. For me, Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. Abstract art is the art of story without theme without logic,, it is through the abstract colors, lines, colors, composition to express way and the narrative art of human nature.
