About abstact art
Abstract art is a form of artwork that is not drawn from a recognizable reality but instead achieves its effect by use of forms, shapes, colors and textures. The word "abstract" itself means separating or removing something from something else from which the idea of the artist arriving at a simplified form from some visible and real elements comes. The term "abstract" is also used to describe art that has no relationship at all with anything in the external reality. Artists in this field, though, prefer using terms such as non-objective art or concrete art to describe their work.
Behind abstract art are a couple of theoretical ideas which include:
- Art for the sake of art- In this case, it is believed that art should be specifically meant for its appearance and beauty other than relevance and usefulness, as in, fine art.
- Art should/can be like music- Some artists think that, just like a piece of music is made up of sound patterns, abstract art should be made up of patterns of forms, colors, textures, lines and shapes.
- Art representing the spiritual mysteries- According to Pato, a philosopher from the ancient Greek, beauty at its highest form comes from imaginary things and geometry and not from things that exist in the physical world.
- Generally, abstract art is taken to be a carrier of moral dimension, in that it is seen to be standing for the virtues; order, purity, spirituality and simplicity.
Abstract art has a long history from the ancient times and still in the 21st century its practice is high. According to Theodor W. Ardono, the ever-growing prevalence of abstract art in the modern world is a reflection of, and a response to, social relations abstraction growth in industrial society. Frederic Jameson similarly thinks abstraction in the present world is a function of abstract money power equating all things as exchange values equally.
How To Pick Popular Birds for Pets
There are several popular birds for pets or bird companions. Parakeets are still highly favored pets; they are good pets for kids and people not accustomed to caring for birds. They chatter, sing, and whistle pleasant sounds. They are smart and their lifespan is from 12 to 14 years. Parakeets are in a category of birds with parrots as are Budgies and Lovebirds, Cockatiels, Parrotlets, and Conures.
The most small species of parrots are lovebirds. They are basically quiet birds. They are intelligent and have personality. They live about 20 years and are about 6-inches long. A highly intelligent bird is the African Grey, which is capable of learning 2000 words. The drawback of their intelligence is they get bored easily and need much attention. Their lifespan is 50 to 70 years.
Cockatiels are originally from Australia. They are favored because of their exceptional performance in singing and whistling. They can be taught to talk, but usually would rather mimic sounds like a ringing phone or doorbell. They live from 15 to 20 years.
Some other popular, but not as common domesticated birds are the tucans, mynahs, and doves. The mynahs are part of the starling family. They are naturally occurring in eastern and southern Asia. These birds are usually destructive, though they make a mess when eating. Mynahs eat pellets, fruit, veggies, and insects. They like to socialize with people. Their lifespan is 8 to 10 years.
The toucan isn't a cage bird and it needs an aviary to live in. They originally came from South and Central America. They are noisy and sometimes bite. They aren't very social with people and they live from 15 to 20 years.
When choosing a bird for a pet it is important to pick one that fits with your lifestyle and the amount of effort you want to put into the pet. Some birds need more attention and others less. Some big birds can be destructive, say parrots, which tend to chew furniture. In the wild they bite tree branches during the day. Larger birds are usually louder too. Parrots are smart and need mental activity and they are social animals.
Also, think of the nutrition, temperament, and maintenance involved in the kind of bird you want to get. Some birds like to get out of their cage and be social, others like to be left alone. Some species of birds need a special diet. Consider the amount of feeding, vet care, and housing a bird will require according to its lifespan before picking one.
