August 2015s Winners of 'Artwork of the month'
Theme: Metaxis Visual Art - Abstract, Representational or both?
All of this month’s artworks explore the boundary between Abstract Art and Representational Art as recently highlighted in the article Metamodern Databases of Art History by Visual Art Trader. It is often assumed that it is easy to tell if something is representational (an imitation/copy of something) or abstract (totally made up, a thing of new creation), but as you will see from these artworks sometimes it is possible to confuse the two! Some artworks seem to straddle both and exist in what Plato might have called a Metaxis. Can you decide which is which?
