Defining the abstractor

Here are two articles recently posted on the internet discussing abstraction. I am interested in these writings because of the perceptions of abstraction in a wider context, how it operates and then how it relates to abstract painting. I think these perceptions and where they originate from can affect the reading of abstract images. I have started to write a response to these but in the mean time you might care to take a look.
