This first art book in the series 'The State of Art' explores the contrast between representational art and abstract art.
This book 'Representational and Abstract' attracted artworks of many styles in a variety of media and has allowed us to ‘curate’ this first collection of artists work and focus on a linear movement from representational to total abstract through the process of abstraction.

The word ‘Representational’ when used to describe a work of art, suggests that the work depicts some recognisable thing or scene. It includes portraits, still life's and landscapes as well as both realistic art and expressionist art, which depicts recognisable things, but in a way that incorporates an emotional reaction to them, without attempting literal reproduction of their appearance.

Abstract art uses a visual language of form, colour and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Abstract art, non figurative art, non objective art, and non representational art are loosely related terms which are similar, but perhaps not identical in meaning.
