“Abstract art places a new world, which on the surface has nothing to do with 'reality,' next to the 'real' world.”
                                                                —Wassily Kandinsky
 

True abstract art not only utilizes flexibility and freedom; it also employs bold uses of color, line, pattern, form, process, mark making and composition.

There are several speculative ideas behind abstract art. While a few have taken the proposal of abstract being 'art for art’s sake' (that artwork should be simply about the creation of striking effects), other people  have proposed art can or should be similar to music; in that just as music is patterns of sound, art’s consequence should be created by patterns of form, color
and/or line.
