I’ve taken art where music lead, by creating work for imagination to interpret as it will. Musicians began to improvise out of the same necessity I felt, with regards to contemporary art, the traditional approach was a dead end. Even as Monet, Van Gogh, and many others worked to free imagination, it succumbed to definition. Art became a psychological experience rather than an artistic one. Artists found imagination easily eliminated confinement, but not the categorical control of definition. Works were produced to fit definitions that were increasingly confining and oppressive for the artist to work with, establishing a frustrating atmosphere that continues. The consequence, imagination and expression were coerced into disciplining themselves to abide; and the art critic found a need for a psychology degree to write about art, no longer a poet working to help the artist express, in words, the beauty they could only express through their art.
So, I rejected past, and present ideas. Choosing my own, by painting to imagination, the principle to expressing it. First, I established a way to manipulate pigments without artist tools. Then, by bringing in the line with ambiguity, I formed a peculiar characteristic. As we ponder, imagination reveals innumerable details. Allowing a depth to interpretation not found in contemporary painting. Creating the Jazz and Poetry of visual art, Imaginism.
Miles Davis’s “Kind of Blue”, was recorded without written music, or rehearsals. Becoming the first deliberately improvised album, revolutionizing music recording. It razed all established conventions. Bill Evans wrote, “This conviction that direct deed is the most meaningful reflection. I believe, has prompted the evolution of the extremely severe and unique disciplines of the jazz or improvising musician.” As a result, music has never been more diverse, or unencumbered. Likewise, art’s progress requires imagination, interpretation, and expression, are equally unencumbered by outmoded ideas.
Imaginism: Imagination delineates Art. Cognizance of the process initiates a complex and evolving interpretation. Individuality personalizes the experience. Art is imagination not a word.
