I’m thinking about how artists choose to make either abstract, non-objective or figurative art. Obviously it depends on the individual’s personal preference about how to communicate.
Back in 1988 I made a drawing of my parents for a show, and titled the piece “The Rosetta Stone”. Not a single person asked me why I named it that. I was surprised a little. These 26 years later I’m still curious about it. But, maybe I don’t credit the audience with enough knowledge to draw the lines.
