Why ArtDenotes

Why ArtDenotes. Because art is about meaning. It is not vomit on a canvas. Meaning does not, in the words of one silly person, “diminish the art.” Rather, art coalescences around meaning.

To take this stand is to acknowledge the history of art right back to the cave, and sculptures such as The Venus of Willendorf; to do so is to recognize meaning is central to art: the artist must learn to construct two dimensional and three dimensional images which communicate to the viewer and user coherent layers of meaning. This is the standard by which I chose to be measured; and by which I judge my art and acknowledge my failings.
