Whereby nothing is actually "abstract" or for that matter ideally
representational, whatever criterion might be applied to form the latter (!).
Rather everything is perceived as through a degree of magnification,
ranging from the subatomic to the telescopic. At some degree of magnification
between these both every abstract painting is actually representational
or vice versa. Calibrate this to the degree of personal optometry and
Van Eyck and Ingres can swiftly be seen to need different corrective
lenses ,as it were. Impressionist glaucoma, expressionist astigmatism
all might be accounted for on a physiological basis. All painterly perceptions would
be seen as being as typological as a set of fingerprints, or the laser-scanning
of the iris of the eye for security reasons.
