Music Vs. Visual Arts

- Music is a category of art all of its own. It has a strong power (per se) because it complements the being. It is pleasing to us without our even noticing most times that this is what it accomplishes. Music is more satisfying than the feeling of working on a mathematical equation; it touches our souls and reflects us inwardly and completely. It is a precise construct and can’t be held in equal comparison with the visual arts. While music is neither an internalized contentment that cannot definitively be explained nor is needed to be learned to fully enjoy it....   [tags: Art, Music, Visual arts, Fine art]

How Can I Be An Artist

- Chapter 3: (Rhythm/Time)—The Daily Grind I remember transitioning from high school to college and thinking, “Now I will get to do whatever I want. I can eat when I want, play when I want, and make whatever kind of art I want.” I was naïve, of course, and I learned on the very first day of classes that it was going to take a great deal of discipline if I wanted to become an artist.

The Neo-Wittgensteinian theory of Art has been modeled mainly after the ideologies and teachings of Ludwig Wittgenstein, a philosopher and logician from Austria.
