A Matter of Interpretation

An artist’s interpretation—representation of a thought, a scene, an event, or an object—might be in the form of sound, video, painting, drama, dance, or sculpture. Every note, brush stroke, or movement vibrates with life and forms the viewpoint from the mind and heart of the artist. Musicians, painters, sculptors, choreographers, and others have often explored the same thing and made completely different interpretations. Individual artists make meaning based on the way they perceive the topic. One of the most enlivening and engaging aspects of artistic expression is the opportunity to frame something in a new way—a way you have never thought about before. There’s a discovery around every corner. Some artists, such as Monet, paint the same thing over and over again exploring things from different angles. Many composers do the same thing with the theme and variation form. The discoveries and meanings of the most renowned works of art establish a strong emotional bond between the artist and their audience.

Reality is how we interpret it.
Imagination and volition play a part in that interpretation.
~ Yann Martel
