Expressing Ideas In Art

“Artists are often admired because they can express ideas in ways that are original, apt, and unique to a particular medium” – Cynthia Freeland from VSI Art Theory

“Sometimes our comprehension of a total experience is mediated by a metaphorical symbol because the experience is new, and language has words and phrases only for familiar notions… But the symbolic presentation of subjective reality for contemplation is not only tentatively beyond the words we have; it is impossible in the essential frame of language” – Susanne Langer.

This painting is In God's Hands by Elizabeth Urabe, you can see a gallery of her work and buy originals and prints at her page.
