Scruton argues that when we take an interest in photographs, is actually an interest in the actual objects that were photographed rather than the photographs themselves. He claims this because he says there is no such thing as photographic representation. He says the photograph relates to the subject in that it is a phot... ... middle of paper ... ... believe makes photography an art, the individual photo may still be considered close to an ideal photograph in the sense that it is a causal relationship. However the medium as a whole is capable of much more than Scruton is willing to allow. I believe that the clear distinction lays in the fact that Scruton's argument that photography's causal relationship is equivalent to perceiving the object without the photograph.
You must be honest to yourself Don't even try to be someone or something that you're not. it is true that A trained eye can spot small changes that any artist made in his artwork, one can notice where anatomy has been intentionally changed, where perspective and viewpoint has been transformed we artists need to go beyond piece of artwork that we create. Be yourself focus on your own ideas and thoughts. You may get inspiration from others but style shouldbe only your’s . Conceptual art or modern art in which your idea is more dominant than your skill, is described as art that is not concerned with traditions or proper use of materials and skills (traditional).
Photography is a rather new concept, yet its importance is paramount in seeing how others live. Photos allow us to see and capture a specific moment in time, just like a wide array of already accepted art forms. I find it truly interesting that Roger challenges photography as art. I am certainly not a photographer, but I never knew some people challenged photography's artistic merit. I will argue today that Roger Scruton is wrong in his belief that photography has merely a "casual and not intentional" relationship with its subject (Scruton, 89).
He believed that this method of painting allowed the artist to express themselves in the purest way possible, with no boundaries or reasoning. Abstract art was not conceived as a way to produce pretty patterns for their own sake, but as a way to communicate more directly with the soul of the viewer. Kandinsky’s art disregards the material world in order to attend more closely to the spiritual one. 9 I would consider my art abstract art for that reason. It is a way of expressing myself freely as an artist.
As such, the photographer makes artistic decisions in the same way that a painter might, and these are demonstrated in the stylistic elements of the photographic surface. Whilst all of the above may be plausible, the style argument, as McIver Lopes notes, fails to address what he refers to as Scruton’s object argument, suggesting that the style argument does not endow one with a reason to “deny that the photographed object… is the object of our attention when we see a photograph and understand it as a photograph, even
When I first sat down to write this article, I was focused on the other prompt. After a few days of flipping through various photographers and their works, option B still plagued me. In the back of my mind, I kept thinking about how photography could possibly be of any use inside the world of creative writing, my major. I thought of cover art first. A lot of cover art is not pictorial in its nature, most all of it now is digital, but there are covers that do use usually panoramic scenes of nature, or are closely tied to movies These novels run headshots of the stars or action sequences from the film on the cover.
When looking at art from a philosophical point of view there's no shape or color or size involved. With the Brillo box, it is considered as art while others are not. Moving on to say that the outside does not matter when it comes to art but just that mindset in the artwork behind the artwork is what’s important. History has overtaken art and once history turns it over to philosophers they were happy to make art in whatever way they wished, whether having meaning, purpose or no purpose. Danto believed that "the major artistic contribution of the emergence of the appropriated images, which indicates that taking over of images with established meaning and identity and giving them a fresh meaning and identity"(Pg 326) .
Cornelia Parker¡¦s idea that visual appeal is not the most important thing, but rather that the questions that are set up in an attempt to create an "almost invisible" art are what are central, will also be discussed. Also, if we concur with Danto¡¦s claims that "contemporary art no longer allows itself to be represented by master narratives," that Nothing is ruled out. ", then it is indeed fruitful to understand art in terms of seeing-as. For application of this concept to art explains what occurs conceptually when the viewer shifts from identifying a work, as an art object, and then as not an art object, and explains why nothing is ruled out. Much of contemporary art, as many have noted, has posed a challenge to much of traditional philosophical aesthetic analysis.
Leger, Boccioni and Rothko were all expressing their inner vision. Art is a form of creative expression. Abstract art allowed artists to push the boundaries of creative freedom by favoring design and emotion over representation. But, as the question is posed at paintings.name, “How free can art be?” (http://paintings.name/) The answer is clear. The only constraint placed by abstract art is that the works are generally nonrepresentational.
In this essay I will try and answer the question: when or even can film be classed as art? In the early days of cinema it was suggested that cinema is never art, film was said to be a photographic record of an artistic performance but not an art form in its own right but film is much more than a recording, filmmakers make numerous choices about every shot they make then you need to edit the film which results in the final product which is completely different to what an eyewitness to the filmed event would or could see, more people today have the view that all or most film is art, Noel Carroll whose book on mass art is a book on the effort to ... ... middle of paper ... ...life. Nighthawks by Edward cooper Blade runner So to answer the question you need to think what is art? To me art is a form of representing a person’s ideas which can be in any form of media whether it be a painting, a film, or a song, a novel or a photograph. For it to be classed as art though it must provoke emotion or thought and show signs of creativity.
