A form of art that allows plenty of freedom and flexibility for both the artist and audience to their own interpretation of the art's meaning and value. It is to not simply portray or replicate something of its realistic form but give insights to its value in a different dimension of thinking.
Even though everybody is looking at the same abstract painting, but each individual interprets it differently.

Abstract in art: Abstract art is the subjective artwork with no defined process, strategy and/or technique label; it allows the viewer to interpret its meaning with his or her objective view of life in that specific art work; allowing artists to explore and represent a wide variety of pieces, from canvas and space to sculpture and more with no predetermined standard for good or bad art.
that piece of art is abstract; that artist works abstraction; that painting is abstract.
