Open Thread Thursday: Art

From Wikipedia: (Art).

Art is the product or process of deliberately arranging items (often with symbolic significance) in a way that influences and affects one or more of the senses, emotions, and intellect. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression, including music, literature, film, photography, sculpture, and paintings. The meaning of art is explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics, and even disciplines such as history and psychology analyze its relationship with humans and generations.

Traditionally, the term art was used to refer to any skill or mastery. This conception changed during the Romantic period, when art came to be seen as “a special faculty of the human mind to be classified with religion and science”.[1] Generally, art is made with the intention of stimulating thoughts and emotions.

    I like art that looks like stuff, as opposed to randomness. I also like rich jewel tone colors.

    I prefer simple patterns to complex ones, such as straight line fractals.

    So richly colored paintings of identifiable subjects, or simple geometric designs are my favorite visual art.

    Obvoiusly I also like well told stories, especially of redemtion.
