There are a number of definitions of abstract art. We could say that abstractionists use a visual language of shape, form, color and line to create a composition which may use visual references initially for inspiration but the intent is not to depict a subject matter in a realistic manner. Abstract art does not depict a person, place or thing in the natural world. Abstractionists do not deal with the representational interpretation of a subject. They only communicate with the viewers in an attempt to understand “reality”. All abstract artists share a common position – reality is subjective, and it’s up to a viewer to define it.
