Art is an individual creative expression. An on-going discussion in art is to define representational art, abstract art, and non-representational art.
The 'Abstracted' exhibition by the Fibre Art Network from Western Canada will explore the concepts of realistic and abstract art. Pairs of artists will illustrate their subject - one in a representative fibre art piece and one in a abstract / non-representative fibre art piece. The art world has many opinions concerning he development of an image/theme from realistic to one that illustrates the essence of that subject in an abstract, or in a non representative way. As you view the pairs of art work, you will see a continuum with commonalities and differences in how the subject has been handled.
This show toured from October 2013 until September 2015.
