Abstract art paragraph

How does abstract art fit into God’s creative order?
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.
