Alters the view of the world we see and retains only the essence of a thing or an idea.
Expressing something intangible; non-representational.
art that looks as if it contains little or no recognizable or realistic forms from the physical world. Focus is on formal elements such as colors, lines, or shapes. Artists often "abstract" objects by changing, simplifying, or exaggerating what they see.
A way of presenting something that differs from its realistic form, sometimes to express a feeling or idea.
Generalized art that retains the essence or characteristics of a recognizable subject or object.
an accurate representation of the contents of a document in an abbreviated form
Abstract art is a style of art that depends on depends on internal form rather than pictorial representation.
non-subjective art, art that utilises shape, colour and texture, without representing real objects.
Art or imagery that is not concerned with accurately representing a subject.
Using elements of art(as color, line, or texture) with little attempt or no attempt at creating a realistic picture.
art that is dependent on colour, form, texture, pattern and line without referring to any subject matter recognisable from the â€˜visibleâ€™ world Â– it is not a painting or sculpture â€˜ofâ€™ something we could see, and so is different from representational art.
artwork where objects have been changed or modified so they no longer look realistic. An abstract work of art does, however, use a recognizable object or thing as its reference or origin.
Style of art that does not represent its subject matter in a realistic way. It emphasizes the elements of artâ€”line, color, shape, texture, and formâ€”to express its subject.
Imagery which departs from representational accuracy.
Not realistic, though the intention is often based on an actual subject, place, or feeling. Pure abstraction can be interpreted as any art in which the depiction of real objects has been entirely discarded and whose aesthetic content is expressed in a formal pattern or structure of shapes, lines and colors. When the representation of real objects is completely absent, such art may be called non-objective.
adj. In art, not representing a human or other recognizable form.
A 20th century style of painting in which nonrepresentational lines, colors, shapes, and forms replace accurate visual depiction of objects, landscape, and figures. The subjects often stylized, blurred, repeated or broken down into basic forms so that it becomes unrecognizable. Intangible subjects such as thoughts, emotions, and time are often expressed in abstract art form.
refers to a design in the abstract style, i.e. one that represents a general form and not an accurate representation of a subject.
Art that departs from literal representation. The subject is transformed in some fashion, for example, simplified or geometricized.
subjective, non-realistic image. An abstraction photograph generally contains a design of patterns or shapes where the identity of a subject is not evident.
Art where the depiction of real objects in nature has been subordinated or discarded in favour of a formal pattern of shapes, lines, color and texture. This is also called non-representational art.
Any art in which the depiction of real objects in nature has been subordinated or entirely discarded, and whose aesthetic content is expressed in a formal pattern or structure of shapes, lines and colors. Sometimes, the subject is real but so stylized, blurred, repeated or broken down into basic forms as to be unrecognizable. Sculpture that is partly broken down in this way is called semiabstract.
An abbreviated, accurate representation of a work, usually accompanying a bibliographic reference to an original work. Lengthier and more detailed than an annotation.
Style of design that uses general forms verses detailed realistic representations.
Describing something that refers to reality but that is not representational. For example, forms that are simplified, exaggerated, or otherwise manipulated may be considered abstract. Compare NATURALISTIC.
Artwork in which the subject matter is stated in a brief, simplified manner. Little or no attempt is made to represent images realistically, and objects are often simplified or distorted.
a work of art whose subject matter is changed or distorted in a way that is not realistic. Often, abstract art leaves out specific details of the subject.
"More generalized representation, animal is more abstract than bear."
