THE METHODS OF PRESENTING THE VISUAL ART 1- REALISM the attempt to portray the subject as it is. Realists try to be as objective as possible. 2- ABSTRACTION the attempt of the artist to show only his idea or his feeling; not as objective as the realist. THE DIFFERENT ABSTRACT PRESENTATION 1- DISTORTION clearly manifested when the subject is in distorted condition or twisted out. 2- ELONGATION is when the art subject is lengthen, protracted or extended. 3- MANGLING is rarely used by artist today. Here, the subject is either cut, or mutilated. 4- CUBISM stresses abstract form through the use of a cone, cylinder or sphere at the expense of other pictorial elements. The use of geometrical shapes is common in Pablo Picazzo & Paul Cezanne art works.
