Emotions in Expressionism

Munch - The Art of LifeHumanity is defined by its ability to perceive, feel, create and respond. Without these abilities we would not be considered humans. We understand, and analyze information and then respond to what we see.

Because most art forms are visual, it creates responses within society that either inspire an emotion or provoke a change. So in essence we are changed by what we see, and this is how a good artist can provoke emotions within us, by creating something that will inspire us to change, to feel, or to aspire to something greater than ourselves.

Art which is created to transmit a feeling or a point of view can change the way we see our life and those that surround us. Art no matter what its form, whether it be visual, musical or dramatically inspires our memories.

Artists themselves are inspired by everyday events, sights, or images and because of their abilities can transmit these feelings to others through their art, and in this profoundly affect all of us as a society. Art teaches us to appreciate beauty or to question our values! As Edward de Bono put it so well, “There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns.”
