@DRT, an interesting thought. You will know more than I do about the convergence of graphic technologies, but I have a necktie (yeah, I know, old-school) with a variation of Klimt’s “The Kiss”, which you show. If it can be printed on silk, it must be possible to create a CNC file?

Theo, you left out the other definitions of abstract, e.g. as a noun or a transitive verb. They go some way to make abstract art understandable. Of course, sometimes abstract art is merely abstruse, but then so are many politicians, and they keep getting elected.
I have a theory that the aesthetics we are exposed to in our early neurocognitive development, hard-wire us for liking or identifying with certain aesthetic values later on, while totally not appreciating others. I try to keep an open mind on these matters, for example rap and hip-hop, but for the life of me I cannot understand what the artists are saying - they speak a very distant relative of the English I learnt - “scarce cater-cousins”, as Shakespeare would say.
Still, who is the fool? They make millions of dollars, out of what I consider unintelligible.

I just copied what was on the page I found. It all looks like it was painted by a demented 7 year old to me. And I'm not understand a bit of it. As far as I'm concerned, if you can't look at it and say something like, That's a nice view, it aint art. Politicians, their main goal in life is to get elected. Then once elected, their main goal in life is to get re-elected.

Yeah, they way I figure it their clients have tons of money, and don't care how they spend it, and room temperature IQs. Just the other day read about some woman on the west coast only buys bath towels that cost $1500 each. I figure they aren't going to get her any drier than $15 towels would get me. People with loads of money always seem to want to buy 'spensive stuff, to impress everyone else. So far can't being very impressed by any of them.

Here is a bit of my abstract cane handle designs. Art it ain't. But fun it is. Don't know how well the pictures will come out, they are only drafts.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
