Abstracting the Landscape

Most artists reach a point that draws them toward abstraction. Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create compositions that may have echoes in the representational world. Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in the depiction of imagery. This departure from faithful representation can be only slight, it can be partial or it can be complete. Abstraction exists along a continuum. Even art that aims for the highest degree of accurate representation can said to be abstract at least theoretically.
