As Banksy said in Exit Through the Gift Shop, “the reaction to the work of art is the most important thing about it.” Without a reaction or an opinion, the work of art has no meaning. Therefore, in order to trul... ... middle of paper ... ..., but that should not subtract from the overall perception of a piece. This critical delve into thinking about art is a reason why, “experimental intelligence needs reflective intelligence to manage its powers for a fuller perception of art-and more generally for a better thinking about anything" (Perkins 16). Art is not about what is visually there, but the reaction that comes from it. Without a reaction, the piece of art has no purpose and is therefore meaningless.
Different people will have unique comments on the same event because of their biases, yet they are all right because the “truth” holds only for a single person. Even though that things don’t have an importance for us unless we think and analyse them by use ... ... middle of paper ... ... is “truth” are different. Since all art is subjective its “truth” is subjective too. It varies from one artist to another. Artist don’t tend to make it objective but they see it as a basis of their creativity.
Executed properly, conceptual art is extremely powerful. And in the case of conceptual art, “what the work of art looks like isn’t too important,” (Lew 155) in that an artist doesn’t have to worry about making their work beautiful. However, an artist must successfully convey their idea to an audience. If an idea is abstracted beyond the understanding of an audience “it is purposeless,” (Lewitt 155). Of course, there could have been an idea that was very clever on the part of the artist, but if the audience cannot understand it from the work, what does it matter?
So by the definition of progress we are unable to say what good is it going to make us, but it will do something generally valuable. So freedom is indeed valuable. Not many argues against the nonindependent value of freedom, since there are a lot of values for which freedom is essential. In my view, freedom is independently also valuable, because we might not know exactly what good is it going to do for us, but Works Cited The Independent Value of Freedom Ian Carter Ethics Vol. 105, No.
His argument is based upon the proposition that photographs can only represent in a causal fashion, whereas painters create representational artwork via intentional relations. Scruton manages to create a solid argument, but in the end I’ll decide it is not a fair assumption to say that photographs cannot provide meaning or aesthetic value. Scruton wants to look at photography as an ideal, but he quickly states that ideal photography is a logical fiction. Why does it matter then? Obviously photography is a complex form of expression and the goal seems to be to derive the basic properties of photography in the simplest terms possible.
I can not relate to the woman in these images, because I don’t view women in that negative light. However, others would consider these images art, because it may cast a light on a subject that is of importance to them. Human creativity has no definition; no right or wrong. What I consider to be art is a personal decision that takes my experiences into consideration. In conclusion, art is not meant to have boundaries but limitless possibilities.
When the forger is trying to copy that piece of art they aren’t thinking about the thought or meaning put into it they are just making sure they are able to ... ... middle of paper ... ...ted, but comparing the original work to the replicated work helped me understand a lot more because I was actually able to see how it was replicated and what the similarities and differences were between both works of art. Appropriation means to take possession of something, which is exactly what appropriation artists do. Appropriation artists want their viewer to understand and recognize the images that are being copied and replicated. Although an original artist and a forgers main goal is to complete a work of art, they both take a different approach on how they are going to complete their final work. There are many people that have different opinions on whether or not replicating art should actually be considered art or the forgers art for that matter.
If we were to ask a critic to critique a work of art, we would expect them to actually remember the contents of the work. Would we be satisfied with a critique that did not mention what the art was depicting, only detailing the quality of lines and ranges of color? I, personally, would expect one who sees true art in a visual to be able to depict the image the art is conveying and be able to interpret these images. When hearing others describe art in great detail, yes, it is expected that they recognize the form and function of the piece, but rarely do they completely disregard the main idea the visual is meant to communicate. This, again, is where Bell is false.
This does not mean eliminating or undermining people's subjective approaches towards a work; the more informed people become, the more artwork will influence them mentally and passionately. This clarifies that people will acquire alternative methods to deal with arts; methods that let them discover evidences and interpret how arts mirror and influence their lives. It is multifaceted, but the fulfillment of watching arts result from observing the work to discover its significance, not merely avoiding it out of the fear of not understanding it
Subsequent to the study of different philosophies of art, as well as completing projects asking for personal preference in art as well as objective “fine art,” a personal philosophy may, by necessity, include subjective and objective facets. In determining what fine art is, the quality of universality is important. There also does not have to be a traditional presentation of beauty for a work of art to be fine art. Contrary to R. G. Collingwood’s philosophy, for fine art the culture and setting in which art is created should not matter, because if art is universal and timeless, meaning endures outside of where and when it was created. Evaluation of art can be subjective, but fine art is universally appreciated regardless of understanding background,
