Be a critic

My Mom says it’s abstract. I think it isn’t. What say you, friends?

    I say this is technically not abstract…. My qualifier is that this image could basically be perceived in reality without the use of hallucinogenic drugs.

      also: could be considered impressionist…. The brush strokes with the field work nicely with the brush strokes of the sky. And the colors contrast perfectly.

    Here was my first impression: tanks and light infantry crossing a battlefield.

    Knowing you, I’m positive that’s not what it is – but hey, you asked!

    It appears to transcend time and space by capturing the spin of the Earth while paradoxically being a still image of the horizon. Agreed, this juxtaposition lends itself to the abstract in a counter intuitive sense that the scene appears to be moving while still, I’d respectfully submit.
    Weird for the sake of weird…errrr, art for art’s sake. That said, I do enjoy it. 🙂

    Your mother is absolutely correct. Your piece is an example of nonrepresentable art. The way you captured the sun is well done and I am probably reading too much into it, but it appears to have a reddish Sun Dog, which is a sign of changing weather. Is it a metaphor, is there a message, is there a political statement or is it just an abstract piece and a departure from realism? A clue may be held if we contemplate your artistic influences.
    Anywho, what the hell do I know of such sophistications.

    To my untrained and unqualified eye, the sky has abstract qualities, especially if taken in isolation. But the land mass comes off as wind-blown, in-your-face terra firma. So, to you and your Mom, gold stars all around. Another great Canadian compromise.

    It’s Impressionist, or more Post-Impressionist really. Definitely not abstract.

    Nice stuff….not too abstract IMHO (but what do I know)?

    Wow! The red border really does the trick. It really brings out the vivid colours.

    Abstract. At least it was when I looked at it upside down:)
    YMMV
