The Real

The paintings seem to be progressing in reverse from abstraction to representation. For what is abstraction in the modern worldview. From being a way out of representing anything abstraction has now grown into visual language (and not just as ornament or decoration)

If no one observes does it exist? If it is observed it cannot exist?
