THE ARTIST'S STATEMENT
the renaissance artists, scientists, philosophers and inventors sat at
the Medici table. An artist was extremely well informed about current ideas --
indeed the artist and the scientist were often the same person.
approach to painting was fueled by the idea that art was a vehicle for
personal emotion. In contrast to this, the Impressionists attempted to
render an "impression" of what the eyes sees at a particular moment, rather
than what the mind knows to be there. As a result, Impressionism was often
accused of lacking intellectual content. Post-Impressionistic reaction
led to reintroduction of emotional and symbolic content. Art in the twentieth
century went through a radical change fueled by the rejection of the naturalistic
tradition, while at the same time, classical physics was being overturned
by Quantum Theory and General Relativity.
In all the
chaos that has gripped science and art in the twentieth century, the Space
Age, at the threshold of the stellar frontier, finally called out for a
grand unification of all art styles as well as science. To "understand"
our place in and relationship to the universe be it cosmic or atomic, an
"all art menu" must be employed. "Reality" can be experienced in many ways,
but the artist must have genuine ideas to express.
