Traditional Art insists upon visible connections to a visible
object. The art piece must, in some detail, resemble the visible
object's appearance; or, the art piece must capture, suggest,
or remind us of the essence or character of the visible object
it is related to. That's enough to mark it traditional, all other
things being unremarkable.
Modern art insists upon its own modification. The art piece obviously
relates to the visible object, but makes changes in ways that
have not any connection or relation to the visual object.The result
is that the subject of the art piece is not the visual object
but the artist, the maker of the very modifications of Art. Perhaps
in the Asia tradition the subject of the art is a value, or something,
in our western tradition, akin to a value, rather than something
like the intention of the artist.
