Default Non-objective Art vs Abstract

I am assuming that by non-representational art you mean non-objective.
Non-objective has no resemblance to any real object. It may be just geometric shapes, bands of color etc. Abstract is real objects that have been changed, simplified, distorted in some way.

Here is a good source for definitions in art:

Non representational = art that doesn't represent an object/thing/person/etc

A non representational is a type of abstract art piece. Abstracts in general are distortion of recognizable things. Meaning, although it is morphed or what not in some way, you can still say with a high amount of certainty that it is what it is.

A non-representational is an art piece where you can't recognize the things inside. Meaning, you see the art piece and you may have a few ideas as to what its depicting, but you can't really say for sure what it is because there are just to many possibilities. They are normally made to give the viewer a certain emotion when they see it.

Default #12 Explanation of Abstract and Non representational

Thank You for taking the time to give such a clear explanation of both abstract and non representational art. I am a student who needed definitions of exactly those terms!

Is there usually a background behind the subject or am i thinking of something else?

Don't know what you're thinking of, but in non-representational art there IS no "subject". I suppose you could still have what one would think of as a foreground and background, but not necessarily.

Do you mean non representational art? Non representational art is not resembling or portraying any object.

I want to chat about this idea: Would it help a non-representational artist to have a set of compositional techniques at hand for use in any given piece of work? For example (and since I'm a collage artist, what follows is particularly relative to paper cutouts, but obviously there's universality to other media; also, the titles I use are purely my own catch-phrases):The flock of birds (a motif-like flurry of cutouts); the bamboo grove (vertical or horizontal slats/strips); the ink blot; cheek-to-jowl collisions; etc. I know: It sounds both ethereal and mundane when one thinks on paper about this approach, but I hope I've shared enough to spark some replies. I'm mainly interested in learning if anyone knows of a similar approach or technique, and again, especially relative to creating non-representational art.

I don't think that many working artists hang out here (and I'm not one). I think you might have better luck pursuing this sort of thread at a community where artists interact -- perhaps you can find like-minded individuals at Deviantart or Saatchi online or someplace like that.
