The main feature of abstract art is that it is a non-representational practice, meaning that the art does not aim to accurately represent a particular subject matter. However, this departure from realistic interpretation can be slight, partial, or complete. There are a variety of abstract movements. In geometric abstraction and lyrical abstraction, we can talk about total abstraction. Figurative art is characterized by partial abstraction. Even realistic art can have partial abstraction as well. But, all abstract arts makers use color, memory and visual sensation to show that reality is subjective – and that is probably the most important feature of abstract art.
