What is abstract art?
Abstract art uses a visual language of shape, form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world.
Abstraction is the process of taking away or removing characteristics from something in order to reduce it to a set of essential characteristics.
Abstraction is also a general idea or quality rather than an actual person, object, or event.
Here you can see some exemples of abstract art:
|Fire in the evening. Paul Klee|
|Tarentelle. Francis Picabia.|
|Two figures. Josepk Csaky.|
|Head. P. Picasso.|
Today we will continue working on the element but not representing it in a realistic way. We will try to find a way to represent our element making something more abstract. I suggest bringing to class papers, plastics, cardboard and other materials that you can use to represent only the color or the texture of your element without any figurative idea.
