Discussing abstract art

I was just discussing abstract art with a fellow blogger. I liked the person’s art because it was a self portrait but done in a very loose style.

I said I thought it will give them freedom of thought. I think of Picasso. He went from realism to abstraction, he had all the knowledge of both in his fingertips…

I don’t know if this makes sense but I’ve selected a few Picasso images to try and show what I mean. I’m not sure I understand Picasso but I do think it’s something to consider. When I was younger I was dismissive of his art , then I learned about Guernica, a village in Spain that was bombed and that Picasso memorialised in his painting of the same name.

  1. When I was in art school they told us that if you learn the traditional ways first then you can do any style art you want to but if you don’t learn the old ways first you can’t do traditional after learning the modern style. I’m probably not wording that right. And I’m not sure it’s true either but he did have both to draw from. Freedom of thought is an interesting idea. That would be good to get into more.
