I believe that one of the objectives of art is to evoke a universal abstraction that we can relate to. Abstractions can be emotions, archetypes, universal principles, and ideas. They form the core of an experience.
Ultimately, it is the unique and individual experience we want to share that becomes part of the observer’s own experience and adds to their experience of what it means to be alive.
An architectural structure, a landscape, or a still life, together with the artist’s version of it, all work together to evoke an emotion, an idea, an experience: the abstraction that lives on in our memory.
