Abstraction No.1 and No.2

Abstraction… defined as a conceptual process where general concepts are derived from the usage and classification of specific examples, signifiers, principles and other methods…

A concept that acts as a super-categorical noun for all subordinate concepts, and connects any related concepts as a groupfield, or category.

Strictly speaking, it refers to art unconcerned with the literal depiction of things from the visible world—it can, however, refer to an object or image which has been distilled from the real world, or indeed, another work of art… or another experience…

Abstract art does not imitate a recognizable subject… it is defined as nonobjective abstraction. In the 20th century the trend toward abstraction coincided with advances in science, technology, and changes in urban life, eventually reflecting an interest in psychoanalytic theory.

These two abstractions date back from the 1990s. 

Later still, abstraction was manifest in more purely formal terms, such as color, freedom from objective context, and a reduction of form to basic geometric designs.
