ABSTRACTION: Art is the making of a new object from the visual, emotional, and intellectual perceptions of the material in our world. It is important to identify the degree of visual imitation of the world around us so as to appreciate the created elements or lack of them in artwork. This process when concerning formal structure is called abstraction. It eventually leads to totally non-objective creations. This group of works is an example of the final conclusion of this process and an examination of the question of whether meaning remains.
