The purpose of art isn’t only an aesthetic one, it’s first and foremost also a spiritual one. It’s purpose is to communicate emotions. The true meaning of a work of art, what we want to communicate, is its subject matter, what we depict in a picture is the object matter, but the object matter is subservient to the subject matter. The idea we want to communicate, the emotion we want to evoke through the symbolic use of object matter, is primary. I don’t believe in neutral objectivity in art. I believe in the importance of the subjective expression and interpretation. Subjectivity.
