Harmony is something objective, it is what all great religions and philosophies strived to illustrate.
Harmony can't be deranged.
Whatever happens in the cosmos, in our human societies or in our personal lives, harmony is always resulting...
Disharmony is an impossibility, it is a creation of our egos.
Our egos are driven by greed and want for possessions and glory. Those are the shapers of disharmony ...
As human creations, paintings are subjective renderings and in consequence they are not automatically harmonious. Our driven egos are more often than not playing tricks on us. In a painting of whatever style, and by extension in whatever artistic form, some objective rules apply to reach harmony.
THE HARMONIZATION OF THE CREATOR's SUBJECTIVITY, freed of his greed and glory driven ego, COMBINING WITH THE OBJECTIVE RULES OF BEAUTY, the princips of life at work throughout our cosmos, IS WHAT ART IS ALL ABOUT.
In art, content and technique are blend into form. What I mean here is that whatever technique is being used to express whatever content, the
form of the resulting work must be harmonious. Harmony is the general state of our universe, of our cosmos. It is not something static, all the contrary, it is permanent change. It is transformation from one state to another state.
These last centuries, western artists and thinkers concentrated on the
idea of an absolute truth and they lost themselves in this sysyphean act of the snapshot FOR truth. We should now make the jump to a supeiror level and discover how to fabricate snapshots OF truth.
I firmly believe that to keep in tune WITH THE OBJECTIVE RULES OF BEAUTY, the princips of life at work throughout our cosmos, we have to concentrate on the sequences between the snapshots while freeing our SUBJECTIVITY of our greed and glory driven ego.
For the observer, the sequencing of changes is what ultimately is making sense of each particular moment. The same goes for the art observer. It is indeed the sequencing of changes between colors, between sounds or between ideas and words that ultimately makes sense of those same colors, sounds, ideas and words.
