DISCUSSION: Gilliam’s work was abstract, yet also represented the human experience.
Representational art is any art that shows recognizable objects, such as people, animals, photographs, etc. Gilliam’s art was abstract, not representational.
See the analysis section for a longer description of what representational art is.
- This painting is representational, because it shows a man. Gilliam’s work was abstract.
- This art is still somewhat representational, because it shows photographs. Gilliam’s work was abstract and represented no forms.
- Same as A and B: this answer describes representational art. Gilliam’s art was abstract.
- This has canvas, like Gilliam’s work, but this art is representational, because it shows the sea and clouds.
- CORRECT. This is the only answer that describes abstract art. There are no recognizable forms in this piece. Also, this answer matches lines 39-41: Gilliam folded canvases onto each other.
