Catnip eh! Good analogy . . .
My take on the whole deal boils down to: There's just not an easy answer, and while we may be batting around semantics, there can still be a lot of value in this type of discussion.
MountainSong probably put it well:
Iím with Ironman here. Discussions about which is better realism or abstractionism are just irritating. It begs a person to choose one or the other. *rollseyes*
Every genre has something to offer, fauvism, impressionism, cubism, abstractionism, Dadaism and on and on.
