Abstract art has passed through a string of golden ages through 1912-25 and 1947-70. At certain stages it has undergone a consistent revival which is why, today's era is the 'silver age' for abstractism. 

As a point of fact, a considerable amount of good abstract art that is made today is actually as good as or sometimes, even better than the abstract art of the past. Some art connoisseurs have accepted this fact and they rightfully quote that “the Golden age of abstractism is right now".

Let us now understand the basic categories of abstract art

Abstract art can be broadly classified into six basic categories. The first three namely cosmologies, landscapes, and anatomies are a part of Nature and the next three are a part of culture. These are fabrics, architecture and signs. Both the groups are not mutually exclusive because abstractism itself is a combination of each one of these ideas. 

A brief look at Cosmological Imagery

Cosmological imagery is a vital part of modern art and it has three main forms. These are as follows:

* Orbs
* Orbits
* Constellations

Many a times, cosmological images comprise of anatomical imagery. Such images are generally inspired by fabric patterns as they exhibit drawn or written signs. Orbs and orbits are clearly visible in the works of eminent and pioneering abstract artists such as Alexander Rodchenko and Liubov' Popova whose works are famous in Russia and beyond. Most of their works displayed in galleries of Indian art collectors, are inspired by the experiences of a cosmonaut in the corrupt old world. These create a rational utopia in outer space through the medium of paint and canvas. Similar obsession with space travel has also been presented as an allegory of revolution by Indian abstract artist Sudhir Talmale.

Cultures across the globe have been depicted through cosmological imagery in abstract art. These masterpieces have been able to successfully carve a niche in the world of abstractism. Consequently, such abstract art galleries have become an instrument for recording spiritual beliefs, and also for creating myths, which define the realms of mortal and immortal.
