Art is an ever moving, changing process that all artists collectively go through. The artwork the artist creates and the use of plastic elements are a means to an end for the process of art. Tacked onto this is the lasting impression of the artwork, an expression of the artist’s vision that serves as a catalyst of the skill once expressed and the biological immortality once followed through. For the sake of this span of writings, the primary focus will be on the interpretations of visual art.
In the previous section, the definition of artwork is described as containing many diverse components. As well as the elements that define good and bad art is dependent subjective for each spectator of the work. What one person may think is vulgar and primitive, another may see as innovative and genius. For this reason, it is difficult find overlap for a collective audience of different tastes and influences what good artwork means.
Sensuality is one way that overlap is seen, an elem
The Word 'Art'/What is Art? The word 'art' is simple, constructed of three letters and the pronunciation does not deviate from law of the English language. However, the definition of art itself deserves some argument. It is highly dependent on the person asked. The reason for tis is because art, unlike other fields, has no defined laws or moral grounds. Historically, since the birth of dada, an art movement that was spurred by Marcel Duchamp in the early twentieth century, all rules and laws that once defined art are now blown apart.
Because of the lack of universal laws in art, almost everyone today views themselves as their own expert on what art is. Going back to the example of Duchamp, who took a "readymade" urinal and tipped on its side in 1917 then called it art, created quite a stir. Even today, almost 100 years later, controversy remains about the urinal in question, the piece Duchamp titled Fountain still provokes arguments about what art is and what separates good art and bad art.
Of Snake Charmers and TreesThere are mathematicians
that calculate the gravitational
pull that tethers us to one another,
teasing sense out of the fabric
of Time and Space like
wizened snake charmers.
I thought them so horribly
unromantic, searching for
logic amidst wildflowers--
reasoning being reason enough
to put one foot in front
of the other each day.
True beauty lay printed
on petals and pages,
where I delved for pearls;
the patterns in the pathos
intriguing me into each
rising of the sun.
I do not remember when
it occurred to me that
without fractals there would
be no trees, nor without love
would people have any reason
to calculate the distances that
separate them from their muses.
