"Abstract" is generally in opposition to "representational" or "figurative" in art. You might say that an "abstract" image just presents its very own type, hence kind might one way or another "represent" some bigger concept (age.g., in how that Malevich's _Tumbling Cube_ might be thought to represent "instability"), but it does not represent an object (like, say, the Eiffel Tower).
Some works (Andy Warhol's Brillo boxes, as an example) enhance the question of understanding abstraction. Somehow that these types of works tend to be "figurative" on a literal degree, however they are not necessarily towards thing these are generally a figure of.

Dave, within the post overhead features defined it quite darn well. I suggest one modification or difference to greatly help more - the use of the term "form" might be altered to "idea" - though it is a casino game of symantics. The difficulty in abstract art is "form" or "idea" can be or perhaps is rather personalized. To essentially strike the "home-run" in this area you have to find the "form" or "idea" that your marjority of men and women can connect with or understand. easier in theory. The "clue" is the name associated with the picture, print or painting, usually, as Dave states the picture is "representational" or "figurative". It's like laughter. I don't think "props" will be able to work - the better approach should check life through a filter - decided what the filter is which is your photo. I can't do a lot better than that.

Objective abstract art will present an identifiable topic in a silly means. Non-objective abstract art will present lines, kind and colors high in light and energy that movement from an non familiar subjec
