Here’s what Annie has to say:
Questions and Comments:
If you find yourself favoring representational rather than abstract art, why?: Because it's easily recognizable? Because the artist captures the subject so perfectly? Because you're drawn to how the artist is able to depict something so familiar yet in a way that you realize you never knew the object/person yourself?
If you have a preference for abstract art, why? Does abstraction allow you to go more deeply into the subject because you don't immediately identify/objectify it? What is it about abstract art that engages you differently than figurative art?
