What is art?

What is art?

 

Art stimulates different parts of our brains to make us laugh or incite us to riot, with a whole gamut of emotions in between. Art gives us a way to be creative and express ourselves. For some people, art is the entire reason they get out of bed in the morning. You could say “Art is something that makes us more thoughtful and well-rounded humans.”

 

“Art is form and content” means: All art consists of these two things.

Jason Martin: Midnight

Last week I went to KIASMA – Museum of Contemporary Art and

I fell in love!

I saw this Jason Martin‘s piece of art and I was wordless.

I walked back and forth and stared this beautiful work.
