8 Themes and Purposes of Art

1. The Sacred Realm – gods, goddesses, angels, demons, spirits of ancestors, spirits of nature

  • Religious images serve to focus the thoughts of the faithful by giving concrete form to abstract ideas.

3. Storytelling – lives of saints, folktales passed down through generations, significant events
  • Artists turn to stories whose roots reach deep into their culture’s collective memory.

4. The Here and Now

– images of daily routines/lives

5. TheHumanExperience
  • We are all born, we pass through childhood, we mature into sexual beings, we search for love, we grow old, we die.
  • We experience similar emotions – doubt and wonder, happiness and sorrow, loneliness and despair.
  • The decisions we must weigh on our journey through life

6. InventionandFantasy
  • The idea that a painting may spring from the imagination

7. ArtandNature – nature and our relationship to it
  • Nature can be a subject for art and also serve as a material for art.

8. ArtasArt – art can be its own theme, with no other purpose than to give visual pleasure or to pose another answer to the ongoing question, “What is art?”
  • New materials or techniques can often inspire a creative response

Three types of art:

  • Representational – represent the world more or less as our eyes see it
  • Abstract – simplifies and recombines shapes
  • 3. Nonrepresentational –does not refer to the appearances of the visible world

Three styles(artistic languages):

1. Naturalism – most faithful to visual

experience

2. Stylization – conforms to an artistic

or intellectual idea

3. Abstraction – process that

simplifies and recombines shapes
