What's a figure?
I am really confused. I have been working on a piece that is figurative, but decided that it was not the direction I wanted to go. How is it possible to keep the idea of a figure without actually using a easily recognizable figure form? I am refering to a stone piece, but my question can apply to any medium. I just wanna know what defines a figure. Is it the figure itself, or can figurative art also involve conceptual art, etc?
