Symposium review: Yvonne’s presentation

We had a great 2 hour symposium yesterday. I won’t repeat everything discussed here but will note three issues that came up that I had not thought about too much before

  • surface plasticity in art
  • can science explain art?
  • similarities and differences between material art and immaterial art

But the main issue for me was about artistic intention and how open or closed it is. I clearly have a message I am trying to explore, experiment with and promote through aesthetics. But many people use art much more openly to explore aspects of life, with no specific agenda or hypothesis.  I know this seems obvious, but when I am studying one person’s images I find my internal voice often asking myself about what they are trying to convey or say, when they may not be trying to “say” anything. Rather they are just exploring.
