If you have gone to an art gallery, you will find out most of the work of arts catching at a glimpse and in a moment, you can appreciate the connotation that the artists desired his/her audience to unravel. Until you came to a piece of art with floral strokes, you will stay in front of it as you tried to put the puzzle of the painting together. This is the time that you would understand, not all paintings have their sense voluntarily presented for the inspector. Some have its meaning embedded deeply into the lines – into the strokes of what seems to be a meaningless junk; there is a soul of an artist!
Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color, and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. One may not really value an abstract art because of the vagueness of its meaning but in my own point of view, people who love abstract are more gifted than people who desire for concrete drawings. It’s because, abstract art stimulates our imagination the more – pushing us to think and create meaning of the strokes behind the floral abstract of serenity and sense.
The connection that is most often linked with abstraction is that it is complicated. Abstract thought, such as one that is used in mathematics and philosophy, does not come naturally to most of us. It embodies a greater level of difficulty than concrete thought does. So it is no wonder that abstract art is difficult for most people. In particular, the process of abstracting out the message of the image is not that easy, unless you have painted an abstract out of concrete scene yourself.
One tip I can give you in getting the understanding out of an abstract art is you should first have interest with the work. I have heard one painter said, “The most pathetic error of an art critic is not that he is wrong or that he fails to understand, but that he understands a work of art for which he has no true feeling. From this quotation, I do consider that accurate admiration of an abstract art comes with true emotions for it. It’s not an issue if you have a different explanation of the art piece from others because individuals do have unusual kinds of viewpoints that they make use to picture out things.
Second, is that you take note of every detail of the artistry. You just don’t disregard a line because it seems worthless or non-sense. Always remember that the more you include each detail, the more the details create a picture out of it that will reveal the true meaning of the floral painting.
Third, you must know what the artist is thinking or is feeling while he/she is grabbing the canvas. Abstract art is more personal than figurative art. What is meaningful for the artist can be a piece of scrap for the viewer. It signifies something to the performer who figured the work of art because the illustration pleads to them in some way, but the viewer does not have this personal connection to the work. The viewer comes in “cold” and lacks any grip to grasp. To have a brilliant optimistic reception of the artwork, the observer needs to have some thought of what the performer was trying to do.
Fourth thing that you must do is that you put the pieces of your art exploration together and synthesize a new picture in your mind. The significance between the strokes, the mind-set of the painter, the details, and your feelings for the art will all help you out grasp the wisdom out of the edged floral abstract hanged up in an art gallery or museum.
So the subsequent time you go out and notice an intangible painting, don’t just have a nippy gaze at it. Have an intent look and use the four tips about abstraction that I shared to you in this passage.
