Art & Beauty

Arte & Beleza

This week the host in Take a Word is Bill and he suggested ART as the theme word. To Bill “art is what makes us beautiful”.

On the other hand, sometimes I wonder on what is beautiful in art. Throughout the years artists have represented beauty in the most varied ways, not everyone would agreed with some of their visions, but be indifferent is not an option. Art always touch us one way or another. And after all should art be beautiful?

My contribution to TAW is also a tribute to everyone who dares to make art.

From left to right clockwise: Lucille by Philippe Pasque (2002); Woman Seated in a Chair by Pablo Picasso (1941); Little Louise  by Amedeo Modigliani (1915), Red Jackie by Andy Warhol (1964); The Broken Column (self-portrait) by Frida Kahlo (1944); untitled by Harding Meyer (2011); The White Skirt by Balthus (1937). Background is from a Bolon's catalog (pattern by Missoni); Texture by Jerry Jones (The Shadowhouse Creations).

Esta semana o anfitrião em Take a Word é Bill e ele sugeriu ARTE como a palavra tema. Para Bill "a arte é o que nos faz belos".

Por outro lado, às vezes eu me pergunto sobre o que é belo na arte. Ao longo dos anos os artistas têm representado a beleza nas mais variadas formas, nem todos concordariam com algumas de suas visões, mas ser indiferente não é uma opção. A Arte sempre nos toca de uma maneira ou de outra. E afinal de contas  a arte deve ser bela?

Minha contribuição para TAW é também uma homenagem a todos os que se atrevem a fazer arte.

  3. Beauty is as subjective as beauty...
    But art is, philosophically, a beautiful way of expression that belongs to humanity!
    Your tribute is brilliant and your idea is great Christine! :)
