You're right Bug - This area is "Lacking".
But abstract art has always been the most difficult tangent of the artworld to grasp for the general public. The "red-headed stepchild" of the art world.
And it's been causing controversy and confusion ever since the avant-garde movment Kandinsky started at the begining of the 20th century. 1903 I think.
I'm still confused by it and I still wonder why I even pursue it - I constantly struggle with the thought of it. it can be incredibly frustrating. Most people I know don't get it (abstract art that is.) and certainly don't understand why I spend so much time doing it!
Can we escape who we are? I don't think we can.
That's my 2 cents
