A picture is worth a thousand words...
Art should speak to you. Art should represent something. Art should be created with the intention to evoke emotion. There are too many definitions of art…the loosest definition today is, “artifice.” The creation of a thing, not by nature itself, but by the will of a person or group. It can be visual, meant to be seen; it can be music or poetry, meant to be heard; it can be a novel to read, a play to watch or a dance to take part in; it can be buildings or clothing; digital or virtual; it can be the disciplined training of plants or animals. So broad is the supposed definition of “art.” This definition, however, is incomplete. It includes many things people do and objects created that most would not consider art. So, what separates a painting from a high-rise? I believe, art is or at least should be defined as: something that was made in order to express feelings, move someone, communicate information, make a philosophical point, entertain people. Every artist should want to create a piece that makes people feel, and experience something they intended it too.
Art is not a thing-it is a way.
