I guess i get it because the left side of the brain can't help but put everything into order and symbols anyway, but WHATS THE BIG DEAL?! can't abstract art just BE abstract? that's the whole point. to not sit around and stare at something and say oh, that's a boat or that's a fish or that's a vagina. i mean, i dont know.
Look at this article about Jackson Pollock's painting. First of all, Pollock kind of pisses me off anyway, but this guy wrote a book on how pollock put his name in his painting?! I really doubt that it matters AT ALL.
