Crossing into Abstraction
1 the quality of dealing with ideas rather than events: topics will vary in degrees of abstraction. • something that exists only as an idea: the question can no longer be treated only representationally. 2 freedom from representational qualities in art: geometric and organic imagery
• an abstract work of art.
3 a state of preoccupation: it’s what happens with artists when they are working.
4 the process of considering something independently of its associations, attributes, or concrete accompaniments: giving objects the power to represent more than its reality.
5 the process of removing something, deleting non essentials, like form, lines, color that tell our eyes it is something from the real world
6 Why? the question that invariably arises. (see #1)
ORIGIN late Middle English: from Latin verb abstrahere ‘draw away’ (see abstract) .
