ABSTRACT ART

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.





 EXERCICE

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.
