“Why is this supposed to he art?”
“What is art?”
Few questions provoke such heated debate, yet provide so few satisfactory answers. Without coming to any final conclusions, we can still bring some light to the problems. For Art to us is first of all a word, that acknowledges both the idea of art and the fact that the art exists.
is an aesthetic object. It is meant to be looked at. and appreciated for ins intrinsic value. Its special qualities set art apart, so that precious examples have often been placed away from everyday life in museums, churches or caves.
I´he word ´´aesthetics” is defined “that which concerns the beautiful”.
The ability to make art is the most distinctive man’s feature that separates him from all other creatures. Though all the living creatures have imagination, only men can tell one another about imagination in stories and pictures.
The record of man’s earliest an is lost to us. Man has been walking the earth for some three million years. But the earliest prehistoric art that we know was made only about 25 000 years ago. It was undoubtedly the culmination of a long development, which we cannot trace.
Who were the first artists? In all likelihood they were shamans. With the shaman’s unique ability to penetrate the unknown and his rare talent for expressing it through art, he gained control over the forces hidden in him and nature. Even today the artist remains a magician whose work can mystify and move us.
Art represents its creator’s deepest understanding and highest aspirations. Being inspired an artist creates a masterpiece. We can say with assurance, a masterpiece is any work of art. that contributes to our vision of life and leaves us profoundly moved. Moreover it does so to many people over time and space. The scientific laws are useless in helping us to understand works of art. In other words, it withstands the test of time.
Art enables us to express our understanding in pictures. This wav is worth a thousand words.
But. what is the meaning of art? What is it trying to say? Artists provide no clear explanation, hut some regularly repeated symbols can be regarded as universal. Nevertheless each particular culture having its specific meaning gives rise to the diversity of art.
