What Makes Art? – The Missing Factor…

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”

“My works are an imitation of my own past and present.”

Barbara Hepworth

The first and broadest sense of art is the one that has remained closest to the older Latin word “tecnicus” meaning, which roughly translates to “skill”, “craft” or “technique”. Whereas the Greek word τέχνη “techně” is often mistranslated as “art,” but actually implies mastery of any sort of craft.      

Artistic form may be referred to as a holistic all embracing one and the impact it might or might not have on the psyche of the instigator or the onlooker.

“The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.” 

Alberto Giacometti

“Sculpture is not the mere cutting of the form of anything in stone; it is the cutting of the effect of it.”

John Ruskin
