Understanding a work of ART


Assuming that understanding a work of art is not the same as unveiling the artist’s intention, the audience perceives a work of art created by an artist through their cognitive system to create their perception of that artwork. The meaning conveyed through this understanding is as valid as the meaning assigned by the artist to the artwork. To wit, the artist creating a work of art and the audience that did not create that work of art are placed in the same situation in relation to that work of art.
