The abstract art fits into God’s creative order in a way of being in order
and balance. God created the world with His own image, and abstract artists
also make their work with imaginary thoughts. The way how they design in
order is similar to God’s creative order. He divided the world by light and
darkness, and the abstract art includes simple colors and forms. Its colors and
forms make other shapes, and they become a final painting. Therefore, both God’s
creative order and abstract art are hypothetical and theoretical.
Abstract painting use color and form to describe feelings and impressions that often cannot be expressed in words.
Just as God spoke the universe into existence, he allows us as his creation to also have domnion over all lliving things that are created (Genesis 1:26-28). Often people describe what they see in abstract works of are as if their interpretation is the only valid one. Are work has value as a creation because man is made in the image of God, and therefore man not only can think and feel emotion, but also has the capacity to create. Are is the work of mindes and hands.

Although abstract artists have their own styles of expressing their emotions and feelings, they never lose aesthetic part of their artworks. As every creature that God made has balance in shape, color, etc, between each other, there are beauties still can be founded in abstract works—even if it look very random and personal. Also, as God designed and made creatures on earth with his love and devotion, the abstract artists highly planned and worked on their visuals based on their passion and love of art. In addition, as abstract art tell how its artists feel and think while they work, we can feel and learn how God was concerned and loving us as he created natures for us. Therefore, both abstract art and the art of God have main purpose to express their creator’s spirits, love, and other emotions about the subject they make rather than show the artists’ physical skills or techniques of art.

There is no rule on the art, but art always has balance or design. It is, however, hard to find balance or design in the abstract art piece. Abstract art, however, has its own way to show such things that people could find easily in the natural drawing or landscape drawing. Abstract art is mostly based on the artist’s mood or feeling. The fastest way to understand abstract art is to recognize its color, shape, or line. For an example, if the artist draws sharp lines with red color, the mood of drawing could be ‘angry’. What is the God’s creative order? God made light in the dark, and he made figures such as, human, animal, or plant. Because of figures, the shadow could be appeared and because of the shadow, the textures could be appeared. Artists drew these textures. Some artist drew the texture different way. The texture changes when the mood of artist is changed. Artists try to express their feeling on the white paper. The art pieces, therefore, are different and each of them has its own style.
Abstract Art is a creative way to see and interpret things. The disfigured forms and sharp angles may not be the most realistic or physical depiction of that object or thing, but that is not the point of it. There is no exact imitation of that object and the emotion that the artist is feeling towards or about it may be shown in the artwork. This illustrates the point that abstract art does not judge outward appearances, but rather use the outward appearance as a symbol from the characteristics within, such as Willem De Kooning depiction of what he thinks of woman in his painting the Woman and the Bicycle. This is clearly not an accurate description of what a woman looks like, but it may be when it comes to how a woman is feeling or what her personality can be.
To define the word “art” is sometimes a difficult challenge for some people. For me, my definition of art is simply anything created to expresses feelings and emotions. God gave us many ways to express our feelings and emotions such as dance, music, and art, primarily abstract art since it portrays emotions. I believe that abstract art fits into God’s creative order because it is a way for us to express the emotions and feelings that God himself created within us. Order, design, and balance in abstract artwork are created out of the artist’s emotions. Abstract art isn’t just a splatter of paint on a page; it requires the same amount of planning as any other style of art. By developing feelings and ideas, many things can be determined, the thickness of lines, color choices, shape, lights and darks, design, placement of things, etc. The overall outcome of a painting develops out the planning and expression of emotions.

Abstract art fits into God’s creative order because it allows people to express themselves and let out what they are feeling. Abstract art creates a distinct form of expression that shows individuality and originality. Abstract art may seem random, but it has a specific design and set up that enhances the feelings that the artist is trying to get across. Many works of art that are considered abstract are carefully planned out before the artist actually begins working on the final product so that everything that the artist is trying to show is shown clearly to the viewer. Abstract are is an important part of the art world and God’s world. It creates a creative form of expressing oneself while still maintaining order and a specific design.
