(This assignment comes to us from Professor Mahoney)

"Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect." Tate Museum of Art, London

Watch this video about the origin of abstract art and its application in the history of art in the video linked HERE. Notice that abstract art might have some relationship to the real world, but it's purpose is not to represent the real world but to represent the artist's process, emotions, or viewpoint.

Check out some inspirational images HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
