What Is Art?

If only the spectators or auditors are infected by the feelings which the author has felt, it is art.

Oh, I guess to make this one art, I have to tell you what I felt when I did this shot: "*#'#*~~~##***, I should really try harder to focus!"

Andrej Nagode, 20.06.2007 at 20:14h

Art is form and content.

Thomas Wallmeyer, 21.06.2007 at 23:37h

Jimmy Brown, 24.06.2007 at 14:30h

very nice colour!

imal , 15.09.2007 at 20:30h

Nice diagonal and nice depth of field colour

Arfi , 30.09.2007 at 2:52h

love the contrast of the colors, remind me of my home-country flag: Indonesian flag. perhaps this is a piece of art.

Fotinos Katsaounis , 4.10.2007 at 0:22h

When various opinions arise as to "what is...?" I go back to the etymology. Art comes from the Latin word "ars", related to the Greek "art-ios", meaning entire, integral, without defects or missing parts. This implies beauty as well, i.e. an appearance without defects.This is merely related to the feeling one has on looking at a piece of Art and not the conclusion of a logical analysis. Your image is a piece of Art because, enclosed in its totality, expresses everything about itself.

Hendrik Boen , 16.10.2007 at 18:36h

I tried to look at this picture for 15 minutes, to see the Art of the Photo. then I come back to see your statement. I put all my strength and feeling to all details and statements together. then I come with 2 colors, red and white. in my Opinion, Red symbolized Brave, and White symbolised Pure. When the white almost overcome the Red, then i thought you were lost. it seemed you were sad or losing something. and I think this photo is really symbolized the strenght you have left. I like your work of arts..greeting

Marques-Riley , 18.10.2007 at 20:54h

OI.. if Tolstoy said it, it is so.. very much arty .. well done andy

Joanne Clews, 21.10.2007 at 16:52h

What is Art? = something that causes a reaction, so does this, i love the colours. joe

Very good work !

manuel bastos , 7.12.2007 at 21:21h

the colors are very hot feel

Monika Czelna , 9.12.2007 at 19:39h is a beauty...even if it is ugly...
art is born in a heart...

Marie-Ancolie , 30.12.2007 at 14:52h

This photo is wonderful and I would hang it on a wall for the feelings I find in it, and the serenity coming through.
What Tolstoï said.... I agree ... ;)

mojgan soghrati , 28.01.2008 at 10:11h

Very impressive and creative.
This photo is a symbol of life to me.A mixture of joy and sorrow.
Great photo.

Alberto Fanton , 18.02.2008 at 22:04h

I would like to be Art ...!!!
But I am a man and the Art is not the same about me !

Sylvia Hein , 20.02.2008 at 23:21h

Thank for welcome. It´s a nice picture. Regarde Sylvi

George Bratadidjaja , 23.02.2008 at 18:00h

thank you for the welcome only been here a few days and i love this place
what is art ? The ability to answer that was not given to humans lets just be happy we can appreciate it.

die Nico , 4.05.2008 at 0:34h

Thank you

Veronika Vasileva , 14.05.2008 at 21:15h

kapelanka , 13.06.2008 at 0:15h

if you say it is an art, so it is :) i guess art has no identity!

corocongkak , 25.06.2008 at 16:27h

is it my country flag?indonesia?hehe

Marius Bothma , 15.07.2008 at 17:12h

thank you Andy :)

Jarle Porsedal , 19.07.2008 at 11:38h

Whos bleeding? =)

Denis Laubert, 21.07.2008 at 13:44h

I think art is related to the point of view. The society delcares art althought may an individual can declare something as art but still need to find a way to make it public.

Ibonefig , 29.07.2008 at 5:14h

I think art is expression that you see :)

adnan kara , 6.08.2008 at 23:27h

Very nice! I think, İt's photographer's finger in front of Lens:))

Ruth Skinner , 15.08.2008 at 15:13h

art is art when the eye of person who is invisioning it captures it as art. everyone sees things in a different perspective.

envisioning a miracle, i see what i see
capturing an object on bended knee
colors magnificent, the lens is clear
as my finger begins to click
i begin to fear
did i conquer, did it stick
no matter, it is mine and i possess
the future of this interesting test.
enlarged, it will make a beautiful catch...

Costache Daniel , 3.09.2008 at 10:11h

Art is soul and imagination... or a gift from God!

golden leaf , 4.09.2008 at 10:21h

Wonderful pic.

Saskia-Rainbow , 11.09.2008 at 17:38h

aldo villalta , 23.09.2008 at 11:02h

sometimes out of focus is the best way to see things...

Reis Lie, 20.12.2008 at 14:47h the colours..:)

John Johnstone, 31.12.2008 at 20:32h

I'm guessing that art, like beauty is in the eye of the beholder, i find beauty in strange things at times, but we all on here have the gift of looking at things in a different way , so we are very lucky in that respect.

I think that photography can be an art form and that digital has helped push this now, film to me was good but digital can't be beat now.

tania frass, 3.01.2009 at 16:01h

Leo_nid, 2.12.2009 at 11:27h

You may as well ask what Truth is?
I guess you know the price that humankind paid for knowing the answer..
BTW, I like your picture

Art is what you create with your imaginary thought.

Serge Sophienczuk-Wojczyszyn, 20.06.2010 at 22:02h

Many thanks for the welcome mail.
What is art? Does this photo answers? Or — the picture offered another question — more for feeling than for intellect. . . .
The theme is profound: HJSyberberg in his Parsifal-installation (Documenta vii) shows the change of st. Graal radiance from red to white (and Mark the Gnostic in his pseudomiracle change white wine in transparent chalice to red, as st. Irinæus report), — blood will be light, flash will be spirit, hard work will be joyful contemplation of the fruits, — but the light may become bloody, spirit may become fleshly and contemplation may become as a hard work. All this is about art. And what is about photo? Does its question is “profound”? The spectator stops rhetorical talking about work — and looks — and that`s good result (Wagner`s Parsifal asked: “Wer ist der Gral?” Gurnemanz replayed: “Das sagt sich nicht. . . Sieh!”) . . . But does the pause in talking is really deep?
Minimalism is in search of the symbol that pose obstacle for mind. This picture is good essay on such way, but not the invention. Standard format with nonrealistic minimal image and galvanizing question in title — bella idea! — But the frame of invitation mail substantially supports this paradox.
The invention of said Mark Rothko (better — of the abstract expressionism) was the colored surface. When we abstract image from material surface — we may activate some other elements for replenishment of the language, e.g. integrate “literary” title, citation, author`s comment into image (imitation of poster). This is not the question of this successful attempt. But this set up a base for the successful work.
