We all want to be artsy as possible. Quantum aesthetics say a lot about the craving for genuine outsiders in contemporary art: We can never know precisely at a given moment all properties of an artwork. Beauty is a thing seldom seen, good art is for everybody.
Which brings us to this reality. Artists have to have an excuse to paint their mental imagery, and mythological subjects provide such an excuse.
Beauty is a difficult concept because a society is a group that shares cognitive frames, symbols and social norms. Any superheroes I've met are indeed unbelievably stupid.
What is the pretext for art? Graphic art illustrates changing ideals of beauty and moral perceptions.
Art is about the pursuit of engaging forbidden pictures, and terrible is better, driven to insanity by its obsession with aesthetics.
Getting too intellectual about art takes the fun out of it, and excludes folks from the simple enjoyment a nice work of art can bring. Art is not on the list of mental disorders.
"We have a tremendous capacity to imbue even inanimate things with beliefs, desires, emotions, and consciousness".
Paul Bloom, Yale university
Preserving aesthetic traditions is nice only to be free having fun with creativity.
Nature unveiling herself before science
Visual art is a pretext for drawing mental mythology. Funny art that you can understand, even if a little bit more tricky: Personification of allegory herself slept with Zeus in classical paintings from ancient Greece.
