Evidence Based ART





ART as Language

Science is starting to confirm what the Masters knew and every person that has  ever been confronted with a strong image either soft and cuddly or deeply gruesome, knows. ART is a language.

Art has the capacity when designed and applied with forethought to convey a whole host of feelings and ideas simply by being in the sightline of the viewer – even with the viewer unaware.

The impact can be so strong, so visceral, grown men will weep at the site of a Michelangelo.  Children cry at the site of clowns. Women will fall in love.
