I have always been drawn to the abstract world. I find myself constantly picking images out of random objects that I pass by, either in their texture, or in their design, or in some aspect of their physical appearance. I never have claimed to be a realist and I definitely do not think in any sort of linear fashion...and besides at least I am always entertained in my own head. When I was a kid one of my favorite things to do was to lay on my back with my headphones on and let my brain go and watch the images in my head.
Abstract art lets you explore you own pysche; it lets you roam around in your own imagination and can allow you to discover what kind of things your brain is capable of coming up with. Abstract art allows you to deal with imagery that is not necessarily always in our vocabulary, or something that we are not very familiar with...i think that's what bothers some people the most about it. They can't put a name to what they are seeing, so therefore they can tend to feel uncomfortable in their viewing experience instead of relaxing and letting their senses explore what is in front of them.
