Re: Abstract Art vs Realism

... in Realism, after conceptualization (choice of subject, how to represent it etc.), the pressure is on getting the details right... in Abstraction it's much more complex... the whole process could be conceptualization or the lack of it... it's on how to get the message across, even if the artist has nothing to say, don't know how to say or don't know what the hell his doing... part of being an artist is to embrace the possibillity of being misunderstood... it is not how it is said or if others get what you said... what's more important is to try to get something across... even if it's badly said...QEI
