What is Art?

If at some point you decide to go on a quest for the answer to this question as I and others have done, you will too attest to the conclusion of a non-definitive answer. And in your journey------- you will experience all sorts of emotions and find it's "definitely" entertaining. Some perspectives, definitions, and quotes are so unique, that words too can only prove individuality as an acknowledgment and form of art itself. Let's take a read of quotes from some of the famous artists you may know:

~ Ansel Adams (1902 -1984) - Us Nature Photographer: I start a picture and I finish it. I don't think about art while I work, I think about life. ~

~ Tracey Emin (1963 - still living) - Created many forms of expressions of art: What is really good about the word ‘art' is that ‘art' is a word like ‘love', ‘God', or ‘whatever'. It transcends so many things. ~

~ Vincent Van Gogh (1853 - 1890) - Dutch expressionist painter: The emotions are sometimes so strong that I work without knowing it. The strokes come like speech. ~

Here are also some other thoughts as to what is said about art:

* Art is considered art when it can cause an action/reaction of the artist's work
* Art can be a way of sharing or defining a meaning, intended to connect to human emotion
* Art can include many things such as: painting, photography, musical arrangements or literary work
* Art serves its purpose for the artist
* Great art pieces are known around the world and have stood the test of time

Ah huh! This is it! ---- So, what have we learned? --- Human emotion? -----------------------------------O.k. - So in a mathematical equation, it should look sort of like this:

Artist + Emotions (expression) + Movement/Style + Medium (tool) + Observer = Art

So, in conclusion.:

~ Racquel Cruz (1972 - still living) - Songwriter, Poet, Artist: Although we may not have a definitive answer for the interpretation of art, we can come up with something that can almost look mathematical, thus slightly logical-----------------------but not really. ~

Absolutely..And, if you really think about it, nothing is really definitive, just debatable.

Thanks for the comment.

I agree.... There are many interpretations of it, and many types of it as well. Some are shallow some are profound and deep. Some are decorative elements wile others a frame will not fit.

I think that for most part ART is determent by the world's understanding. An artist can't chose what art is to the world, as he can only see what the word is to his work.
I like to create art that is true to its time ( inspire by current events ) in the attempt to encapsulate the status quote agist time.
I hope I made some cense, Im not a writer and my grammar sucks...
Thanks for the post.
