This type of art is meant to grab your attention and pull an emotional response from within you. So what grabs your attention when seeing a particular piece of abstract art? Abstract Art, in most circumstances, is filled with colors of all sorts that are meant to turn heads. This characteristic, along with others such as the paintings texture and other elements, are what make this form of art one of the more popular styles today. The creativity involved with abstract art bring a new imagination that some viewers didn't know existed within them. This art is from the heart and soul, instead of what you see is what you get. Abstract Art is more than just a thoughtless mess put on a canvas.
The beauty of non-representational art is that we can create the story within the painting. We can ask ourselves, "Why do these colors interact with each other?" or "What does this symbolize?".... and with those questions our imagination brings about answers.
