I have observed artworks of premium galleries and art collectors in India & Middle East. I have noticed mostly they collect and promote abstract / conceptual art. I am not yet evolved to interpret abstract art, hence I am not any authority to comment on it. But it's a trend here , I am not aware about other geographies .
While people like realistic still life/ landscapes but they are not okay with the price points. Now I wonder whether Realism (especially landscape/still life) has any market elsewhere? If yes, then how should one reach out to. I am an emerging artist , I am struggling to understand market for my art.
