This abstract painting of fire presents a picture that doesn’t exist in the world. And describe various forms that have no physical form.
Description Of Abstract
Abstract painting is one of the art styles that are difficult to understand. Sometimes the various abstract images contained in it seem unreasonable. Scribbles are scattered everywhere and do not resemble any pictures. There are no figures, scenes or even definite shapes in it. The meaning of abstract is “It exists in the mind or as an idea but has no physical or concrete existence”. It exists as an idea or ideas but has no physical or concrete existence. The meaning of abstract in art also takes the same reference to that definition.
That is to describe various forms that do not have a physical/concrete form in the natural world through the idea of art elements, namely: lines, shapes, colors, etc. Abstract painting is a painting that presents an image that does not exist in the world. Abstract painting will not draw the subject of human portraits, landscapes or other references found in nature. That’s why abstract paintings look just like original scribbles painted on canvas.
Level and Meaning of Abstract
Sometimes abstract painting is also called a simplification of something real and concrete. A skilled photographer can turn a real object into an abstract one. Likewise with artists, sometimes artists use concrete and tangible things to make abstract works. Like the Indonesian artist from Bandung, Ay Tjoe Christine, who was inspired by the wings of insects in his abstract works. In fact all ideas are abstract things if they are not concreted in something. It is the description of the abstract idea that becomes the problem. In addition, does the depiction want to present the idea as it is. Or want to be displayed and communicated as clearly as possible to the public.
The level of Abstraction is clearly visible through the illustration above. If it is too clear, sometimes conveying abstract ideas can seem too radical. Meanwhile, if it is too abstract, it is difficult to know the idea you want to put forward. Visual communication design or applied art will tend to take the middle level. Because the message will be clearly conveyed to the public. While pure art tends to explore at various levels of abstraction, including the most abstract. That’s where abstract images stand, at the highest level of abstraction. Not all works of art have to have a message or purpose. Sometimes abstract paintings are painted just to be enjoyed like the beauty of flowers in a garden. Appreciate and enjoy the various combinations of shapes and colors that occur in abstract works.
