It is often mistaken that a comparatively realistic approach to painting necessarily means a straightforward, more orthodox, less adventurous way of painting. That is by far an inaccuracy, since figurative painting can open up the scope for invention and improvisation as well as more possibilities of bringing in different levels of meaning.
Abstract painting can only deal with emotional states in the most generalised form, whereas figurative art can call up exact feelings and specific moods. Furthermore, abstract art has no predefined limits but responds to the senses of colour and light and knows no boundaries. KLEE (Figure 1)
