Clive Bell on “Art”
February 21, 2011Posted by on
I love Clive Bell’s book – “Art”
Clive was Vanessa Bell’s husband, they were quite a creative duo!
Clive has many thought provoking theories on Art.
I believe that the way to stimulate and grow your “creativity consciousness”, to find your place among your peers and to solidify your belief system, is to allow a lot of ideas in, sort them out and come to your own conclusions.
Not every quote that I’ll present you with do I necessarily agree with 100%, but they are things that got me to thinking. And that’s what stimulates our creative juices.
I’ll be sharing a lot of his ideas along the way. As always, I’d love your feedback.
In this quote he’s speaking about the general museum goer/ viewer of the artwork.
“They treat created form as though it were imitated form, a picture as though it were a photograph. Instead of going out on the stream of art into a new world of aesthetic experience, they turn a sharp corner and come straight home to the world of human interests.”
“Things that make you go…. Hmmm”
