Visual art appeals to eyes, not to points of view.

Realism or Abstract?

All art is realism or all art is abstract, since no artwork captures the infinite depth of the reality that it might represent. In a written work, to use an analogy, an “abstract” is a summary of the whole composition – it distills important elements into a containment that you can grasp in a convenient measure of time. Any artwork distills important elements too, always leaving out details that exist in the reality that inspires it. Even the most realistic painting leaves out something. For example, a landscape painting leaves out cellular anatomy, molecular composition, atomic and sub-atomic structure. Consequently, there is no such thing as art devoid of abstraction.
