Rediscovering the dynamic properties inherent in art

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to propose a dynamic approach in interpreting patients' artwork based on the concept of "Visual Thinking" advocated by Rudolph Arnheim (1969). In exploring both æsthetic and psychological properties, inseparable and inherent in art, I will focus on the following points: (a) the different approaches in interpreting images, (b) the role of intuition in viewing art, (c) the dynamic quality inherent in art, (d) the semantic implication of art, and (e) the role of language in interpreting art. These points will be later expanded and substantiated by Arnheim's (1966) æsthetic theory.
