bjorke and others...
u knwo, there are so many opinions about the art and its function etc... u can find full shelves in the labrary only on this thing. i look at the histoty of art, at the great artists... take an example |Goya (i think everyone will agree that he is one of the greatests). is he creating colors and forms... well sure he is.. is it beautiful... have no words to say how much. but there is some much critisism from goy towards society. there is so much "higher meanings" about the humanity etc etc. he painted jesus (a very famous of his paintings). what is that picture - an icon???!!!
he expressed throughthe colors and forms a new attitude towards "jisus" and by that broke the rules of religion. how???
well, at the bigginig there were paintings of jesus in form of icons. then they moved to very thin and ill, suffering jesus with plenty of symbols etc., all from the bible stories. here comes Goya - revolution in his expression. the "form" of jisus was of a normal man with flash etc. the color was much pinkier. the church at some time lost its suverinienity on "thought".
so, u say that no higher meanings etc...
