Non-conformist, Visionary, and Independent

Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which exists independently of what may appear to others as visual realities. Western had been underpinned by the logic of perspective and an attempt to reproduce an illusion of visible reality. It allowed the progressive thinking artists to show a different side to the world around them. By the end of the 19th century many artists felt a need to create a 'new kind of art' which would encompass the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy. Abstract artists created art that was diverse and reflected the social and intellectual turmoil in all areas of Western culture.

People that chose abstract art as their preferred artform tend to be visionsaries. They see things in the world around them and in people that others may miss because they look beyond what is visual only with the eye. They rely on their inner thoughts and feelings in dealing with the world around them instead of on what they are told they should think and feel. They feel freed from the tendancy to be bound by traditional thought and experiences. They look more toward their own ideas and experiences than what they are told by their religious upbringing or from scientific evidence. They tend to like to prove theories themselves instead of relying on the insight or ideas of others. They are not bound by common and mundane, but like to travel and have new experiences. They value intelligence, but they also enjoy a challenge. They can be rather argumentative when they are being forced or feel as if they are being forced to conform.

Extroverted, Progressive, and Intelligent

Cubism was a 20th century avant-garde movement, pioneered by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. It revolutionized European art and inspired changes in music and literature. The first branch of cubism, known as Analytic Cubism. It was both radical and influential as a short but highly significant art movement between 1908 and 1911 mainly in France. In its second phase, Synthetic Cubism, (using synthetic materials in the art) the movement spread and remained vital until around 1919.

People that chose Cubist paintings as their favorite art form tend to be very individualized people. They are more extroverted and less afraid of speaking their opinions then other people. They tend to be progressive and are very forward thinking. As the cubist painting is like looking into a shattered mirror where you can see different angles of the images, the people that prefer these paintings like looking at all angles of a problem. These people are intelligent and they are the transformers of our generation. They look beyond what is seen into what things could become. They are ready to leave the ideas of the past behind and look at what the future has to offer.

Cubism scares me! (Hope your day imroved, three meetings is a vast and awesome level of suckitude.)

Heh - and abstract scares me. Although I submit that not all of my choices were cubist - not the falcon, certainly, or the reflected line of trees... :D

But certainly you strike me as visionary and independent and non-conformist! \k/

Alas, my dinner meetings are running 100% inedible. Disappointing, and hunger-fying as I have nothing in the house, not even bread & butter anymore, and no time to shop. But at this point I am too tired to care.

The worst part? I have three more days ahead that will be just as obnoxious and late-lasting. :(

My sympathies. Try to find some way of treating yourself, with a nice meal, a walk, or a favorite piece of music, between times.

Great googily, abstract and cubism both make me go, "Buh?"

Though I think I do better with the abstract. That particular one makes me think of a bird flying into a sunset. It's pretty colors, anyway.

Do you feel the result suits you? I took the test and got "Ukiyo-e," the floating world. Heh. Quel sooprise. ;)

I'd say it suits me fairly well. I tend to judge everything from art to people, to politics and religion by absorbing it and then seeing how I feel about it.

Ukiyo-e is also lovely to look at!

Okay, if that's abstract, I could *really* get to like it. That's just gorgeous!

Lines and color, babe, it's all about the flow.

::grinning:: I don't mind the ones where I can see lines and patterns. If I can tell it does say something, even if I don't speak the language, I enjoy looking at it. Pollack's spatters don't say anything to me, though.
