Abstractionism

The tendency of the separation of art from the image of reality received a logical conclusion in the works of abstract artists. Their work was distinguished by a complete lack of plot and composition. Abstract art is considered one of the most complex phenomena of modern culture, since it completely excludes ideological content and figurative form.

A new direction in art was named from the Latin word abstractus, which means “abstract”.

The quality of such work is practically not evaluable. Theorist of abstract art, Michel Seyfor, defines this direction in this way: “I call abstract any art that does not contain any reminder, no idea of ​​reality.”

The painting “Felix”, praised by critics, depicted the double, combined eyes and wings of a monstrous bird. Refined vision, Continue reading
