Philosphy Project

  1. 1. The Philosophy of Art Exploring the Emotional Expression Theory By Lyndzie Taylor, Danielle Lavoie, Damale Kifuko and Sarineh Hossepian
  2. 2. Why do we need a criteria for judging art? <ul><li>Otherwise everything would be considered the same </li></ul><ul><li>To obtain a better understanding of art and its purpose </li></ul><ul><li>To distinguish good art from bad art </li></ul>
  3. 3. Art is the objectification of feeling. -S. Langer
  4. 4. Art as an Expression of Emotion The purpose of art is for the artist to express an emotion, and in turn, evoke emotion in its audience. Through artistic expression, we can tap into a deeper understanding of life, reality, etc.
  5. 5. How does the emotion theory work? Art expresses emotions and illuminates life. A good artist succeeds at expressing emotion through their work, as well as communicating emotion for the audience to experience. A bad work of art fails to execute these things successfully.
  6. 6. Why is this theory sufficient for evaluating art? <ul><li>Art is creative, and requires the artist to have “intuitive knowledge” which comes from the imagination. </li></ul><ul><li>Philosopher Benedetto Croce said, “the spirit only intuits in making, forming, expressing.” </li></ul>
  7. 7. What about other theories? <ul><li>Imitation </li></ul><ul><li>Form </li></ul><ul><li>Art Authority </li></ul><ul><li>Good art does not always imitate life or follow form, nor does the artworld always agree on which works are good or bad. </li></ul><ul><li>More often, the artist has a feeling behind his or her work of art that they are expressing and attempting to convey to their audience. </li></ul>
