"Nonrepresentational, nonrealistic, nonpictorial, symbolic, impressionistic"... these ar the words the dictionary uses to describe ABSTRACT.
In art terms think of the paint spatters of Jackson Pollock, the twists and angles of Picasso, Monet's later waterlilies, the colour fields of Mark Rothko, to name a few. But also think of the world reflected and refracted in puddle or bent and morphed through a rain-streaked window, of streetlights and neon signs blurring by through a car window at night, of the undulations of tide-washed sand and the twists and turns of old wood grain, and of peeling paint and flaking rust. Even the real world can seem abstract and surreal.
