Aesthetics of Art- Lucy

This is my S’more of my project.



Dimebag Darrell & Pablo Picasso

“Music drives you. It wakes you up, it gets you pumped. And, at the end of the day, the correct tune will chill you down.”

-Dimebag Darrell

What he is saying in this quote is that this and all other forms of art can drive your daily life, it can motivate you, and it can attune to your emotions; and Dimebag uses his art to inspire these emotions in others.


“Musicians tend to get bored playing the same thing over and over, so I think it’s natural to experiment.”

-Dimebag Darrell

Dimebag talks about how it’s too common for artists to just follow the status quo of other artists, and not go outside the parameters of what’s popular. Dimebag wasn’t afraid to experiment, and greatly shows us by this one quote alone.




“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls”

-Pablo Picasso

Pablo believed art should be much more than a pastime, he believed it should be a way to express ourselves and even get a break from the harsh realities of life. On top of this, I also believe this quote means art can help transform our lives from what we perceive as boring into whatever we want it to be.


“Art is the elimination of the unnecessary”


-Pablo Picasso

In this quote, Pablo Picasso is saying that there is no such thing as unnecessary in art. In the art that he did, he believed everything he did was extraordinarily pertinent, no matter if it were on purpose or accident. This is why people say “there are no wrong answers” in art, because in art, when we eliminate all things unnecessary, nothing is wrong.

To me, art is a way to express who you are spiritually, mentally, and physically. Artists that I look up to believe this as well, and people like Dimebag Darrell used his amazing guitar skills to create what he perceived as art; and we all have different perceptions of art like, just as Pablo Picasso said. Art is a beauty that cannot be judged or discriminated against, because it is unique to each person that creates it, art is a truly important form of expression, and has been since the day it was first  created; and I do believe it will continue to be forever.


Philosopher: William Shakespeare

Quote: “Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”

Reflection: i think that this quote is important because i think that it is true and its saying dont be afraid of anybody else just because what they do. You should do your own thing and be your own person you can do just about anything that anybody else can. He also states that some are born with greatness and some have to work a little more harder.

Quote: “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.”

Reflection: Even though some people dont think like this i think that no matter what you should do your own thing and be happy with the work you do and not worry about what others say about you.

Quote: “Be humble be hungry and always be the hardest worker in the room.”

Reflection: I think that this quote relates to art because you should want more for yourself and work hard then anybody else to do what you want and strive for what you want this relates to art because you should not worry about others and do your best

Quote: “Wake up determined go to  bed satisfied”

Reflection: I think this quote means alot because everything that comes your way dont wait to get it done because you will have to do it anyways so just do it when told to so at night you can sleep better art has value in many ways

Image result for the rockPersonal Reflection: I think that art is something that everybody use daily without them even knowing, i love music i love movies and art will only get better throughout the years so everybody should get involved in art.


Johnny Depp & Tim Burton


Tim Burton


Burton is a director and filmmaker who you may know from movies like Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Alice in Wonderland, and Batman with Jack Nicholson.


“I love all forms of animation, but there is something unique and special to stop-motion: it’s more real and the set is lit like a set. But I think it’s also a kind of lonely and dark thing to want to do.”

What he is saying is that he does what he loves, even if if it means that he is alone while he is working.


“There’s something about seeing this little inanimate object coming to life that’s just very exciting. That’s why with ‘Nightmare’ I held out for so long to do it.”

He does what excites him and he cherishes every moment of it. He loves what he does, and does what he loves.


Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp is an actor who has been in many movies from Pirates of the Caribbean to Sweeney Todd.


“If there’s any message to my work, it is ultimately that it’s OK to be different, that it’s good to be different, that we should question ourselves before we pass judgment on someone who looks different, behaves different, talks different, is a different color.”

In this quote, Depp is saying that being unique is good and that we shouldn’t judge others by what they look or act like.


“I am doing things that are true to me. The only thing I have a problem with is being labeled.”

As with Burton, Depp does things that he loves, he does things that are true to him.

Aesthetic Statement

Art is doing things that you love. Love what you do, do what you love. Don’t judge people, don’t let people judge you. No matter what do things that interest you, and that make you excited, because that’s what art is, that’s what art means.


Aesthetics – The Value of Theatre #BNHSTheatre1ART

What is my viewpoint on “artistic expression”? This analysis of two quotes from two different aesthetic philosophers will contribute to the conclusion of what my artistic statement is.


Kendrick Lamar

“My whole thing is to inspire, to better people, to better myself forever in this thing we call rap, this thing we call hip hop.” -Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar’s goal is to create art by being the good in society and make the world a better place. By writing songs about his hard life, he can reach out to those who can “see his colors”, or better understand him and have lived through similar experiences.

“I remember you was conflicted, misusing your influence, sometimes I did the same. Abusing my power, full of resentment, resentment that turned into a deep depression. Found myself screaming in a hotel room, I didn’t wanna self-destruct. The evils of Lucy was all around me, so I went looking for answers. Until I came home, but that didn’t stop survivor’s guilt. Going back and forth, trying to convince myself of the stripes I earned. Or maybe how A-1 my foundation was, but while my loved ones was fighting the continuous war back in the city, I was entering a new one. A war that was based on apartheid and discrimination, made me wanna go back to the city and tell the homies what I learned. The word was respect. Just because you wore a different gang color from mine’s, doesn’t mean I can’t respect you as a black man. Forgetting all the pain and hurt we caused each other in these streets. If I respect you, we unify and stop the enemy trying to kill us. But I don’t know, I’m no mortal man, maybe I’m just another guy.” – Outro from Mortal Man, To Pimp A Butterfly, Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar describes what happened to him, a series of events in which changed his life forever. He was forced into gang violence as a young teen, living in the rough streets of Compton, CA. He describes himself as “a good kid in a mad city” which depicts his contradictory feelings toward gang violence and inner city culture.  He is no mortal man, and he has made mistakes in his life; but he can teach others about his mistakes in his songs and hopefully they’ll learn, too. Everyone makes mistakes and anyone can learn from them, even within art, whether it’s in a song or in a painting.


Emily Dickinson

Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.” -Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson, the appraised American poet, gives a pithy answer to a complex philosophy. The commonly asked question “What is the meaning of life?” is answered by Emily in this short response. Basically, enjoying life is what Emily believes because at least you are alive, why not celebrate it? You cannot live and not appreciate life (unless you are insane), for life is the greatest gift you’ll ever receive. Anyone can do this, especially in the form of art.  Art can help you express your gratitude for your life and for other’s.

“Behavior is what a man does, not what he thinks, feels, or believes.” – Emily Dickinson

In order to cause something to happen, you must do something about it first. You cannot simply think, feel, or wish something to happen without actually doing something about it. With art, you can express your feelings freely and you’re not just feeling it; you’re expressing it.

Artistic Statement

Art is something that is expressed through someone’s thoughts, beliefs, ideas and feelings to get a certain point or message across in different medians such as music, poetry, art itself, to perform and many more ways. You can express your thoughts and ideas in art with ease. Emily Dickinson and Kendrick Lamar demonstrate artistic expression with elevated ability.  Art is the never-ending surplus of creativity that has some kind of message within it’s multiple layers; you can express yourself and make something amazing out of it.

Aesthetics: Spielberg & Shakespeare

Steven Spielberg:Image result for steven spielberg quotes

                       “I don’t dream at night, I dream all day; I dream for a living.”

                                                                             -Steven Spielberg

Jack: In this quote, Steven Spielberg shows that he loves his job and it is like a dream to him. I like this quote because all jobs should be treated as dreams, enjoy them. this quote applies to theatre because performing on stage is like a dream.

                 “Whether in success or failure, I’m proud of every single movie I’ve directed.”

                                                                                                       -Steven Spielberg

Jack: I think that this quote is saying that not everything you do will be a hit, but you should be proud of it. I like this quote because it shows that even famous directors make mistakes but they are still proud of them. This quote applies to theatre because not every performance will be a hit, but you should be happy with them anyway

Shakespeare:Image result for shakespeare

                            “There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so”.


Jack: I think that in this quote, Shakespeare is saying that things are only bad if you think they are bad. I like this quote because it tells me that when something happens, you choose how you think of it. this applies to theatre because when you try something or forget your lines, you could think it’s bad, or you could make up something that will be great.

   “Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have                                                                         greatness thrust upon them”.                       


Jack: I believe that this quote is saying that you shouldn’t fear greatness, you should embrace it. Some people cannot control whether they are great or not. I like this quote because not everyone wants to be great, but you can’t control it, so just go with it. This quote applies to theatre because people might like your part more than the lead role. you would be more famous and great than that actor.


Jack: I believe that art is important to everyday life because it lets people express imagination. Without imagination, nothing would be invented we would be nowhere near where we are today without creativity. There are no mistakes when you are enjoying yourself.



I choose Plato and Sara because I want someone from two different time periods and i wanted to have two different type of view. I choose Sara because I love her music and I choose Plato very inspirational.

Plato 1:

“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation”.


I think this quote by Plato is saying that you can learn more by interacting and play and see how they react to something than have a conversation for a year. What this Quote means to me is that when you play with people or create with people that you can learn more about them and who they are. I think that in theatre it is very important to interact will other people and try to show other people and what they are like.

“A good decision is based on knowledge and not numbers”.


I think the  Quote by Plato is saying that to make a good decision you have to have the knowledge to make the right decision not just to guess. What this Quote means to me is that in life you should make smart decisions and not guess, and good decision are good in life especially if your life is not going to turn out very well. In theatre it is important not to guess because it is important to be positive on you want to do because if you are not, then when the person next to go messes up too.

Sara Bareilles

Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out honestly i wanna see you be brave

    sara-bareilles                                                                       -Sara Bareilles

I think the Quote by Sara is saying that you should be able to say what you want and not let other people tell you what to say. What this quote mean to me is that you should be able to say what you want and don’t to get in trouble and if you not to be scared if you do and be brave about. It is about to be brave and not to be scared. I think it is important to the art because you should be brave and so you can step on stage and say what you like and not to be afraid that you are going to make a mistake.


I’d like to think I’m someone that has the capacity to be brave, but honestly,It’s something I work really hard at.                                     – Sara Bareilles

I think this Quote by Sara is saying that in people the capacity of braveness has limits and not everyone is as brave as everyone else. What this quote mean to me is that everyone is brave in their own way. In theatre it is important because if you are not brave then you will sit and do nothing, so you need to know what your capacity to be brave is to show others who you are and what you do to show your creativity.



I think that art is very important because it shows different forms. I think I know that there are many different kinds of art, such as theatre arts,orchestra and band. Everyone has a different type they like and everyone is unique in their own way. For me that is theatre and for everyone there is a different type of art for them.
