Abstract - What do you see when you look at this piece?

 

What do you see when you look at this abstract? 

Do you see bubbles, balloons, purple trees from above? 

Do you feel emotions rather than 'see' something, does it make you feel calm, confused, angry, happy, sad? 

Does it ask you a question, does is answer your question? 

Do you feel like each mark was made with purpose and meaning or do you think that these marks are a series of 'mistakes' that form to create an image of no real worth? 

Abstract art evokes different feelings in different people. Some people love it and some people hate it. I have always been fascinated by the affect of abstract art on its viewers. 

If you look at clothes and home interior designs over the recent years vibrant abstract designs have become something of a trend. I've noticed bold and bright abstract patterns on leggings, joggers, T-shirts and hoodies. Cushions, sofas and blankets. I wonder if the use of these abstract designs has effected the way that viewers view abstract art? Has it made abstract more relatable? More accessible? or has it had no effect at all.
