Rachel Levenson – this is Art, to me

September 1, 2009

Art is an interaction, an investment, between an individual and their surroundings. There is no painting, without a viewer, no artist without a canvas, no art without a person who called it “art.”

Because there is no art and no viewer in a black hole, the points of insertion where a viewer enters a piece of art tell you a lot about the viewer, maybe even more than it tells you about the artist.

Conscious or unconscious, it is this interaction that makes me value art as a language of expression that both works within and surpasses words.

I chose a sculpture (the second Miro published on this list) because sculpture demands a consciousness of a piece of art’s relationship with its environment (including its viewer) that I have just begun to appreciate. So to me, this is Art because of my own viewing of it. Maybe it will be for you, and maybe not. Either way, that is OK by me.
