There's just no way to see it coming, I had to ease my way into looking at them. them.
I love that post of yours that you linked, our intentions are similar. In my first post of this tag I was in awe of how art can do things to me, its audience. When we look at a painting, really experience a painting, it's no longer striking a pose for us on a wall. We step into the painting's house now man. It can and will make its statement and will not hear your replies or care about your reaction. If we want to appreciate the art and find the meaning, we'll shut up and listen.
So, if you connect to a painting it will offer you the ideas you're referring to, regardless of "how much" is in it. I dont imagine a painting to he quantifiable like that. That green rectangle didn't have as much variety of color but it still made me really damn frustrated. If I just scrolled by the first Podhajsky, I would notice the vivid colors but I wouldn't have felt it's particular statement, which in that case to me personally was an invitation to explore.
You got me rambling, it would be better to ask you, is there truly art that can't be connected to an idea?
