Pure Art

Pure Art is the treatise that purely abstract concepts and intentions in the creation of art, naturally, still follow the physical laws of a specific multiverse.  Despite the seeming randomness of non-objectivism; basic physical laws (such as balance and composition) still affect aesthetics in the drive for pure abstraction.   The difficulty in widespread acceptance of this idea has more to do with the lifecycle of art through the ages than actual recognition of the basic concepts.  Pure abstraction is only a century old.  If we breakdown the exploration of Art to a timeline of human existence, this is what we are left with:
  • Cave painting was Art’s birth
  • the Greeks engaged our learning throughout its toddler years with the discovery of aesthetic perfections
  • the Renaissance and onward through the times of Ruben and El Greco, were Art’s turbulent rebellious teenage years where the rules were bent and broken but hidden behind the illusion of realism; the Catholic Church was the parental figure that punished and rewarded creative duties
  • while the often-considered rebels of early-twentieth century movements that ultimately led-to modern art are more accurately the mature embrace of early-adulthood and the natural human sense of experimentation with purpose
  • Art is now in middle-adulthood, that moment when understanding accompanies both a heightened comprehension of the effects of theorizing the future as well as recognizing past opportunities, both missed and embraced
Like theoretical physics, Pure Art redefines the differences between that which is true and what is possible.  If the human mind can conceive a unique idea or angle to existing laws, than that mere conception makes it a logical possibility or truth. - North
