Studies on a path to technical destruction and conceptual rebirth concerning some of the prominent developing philosophies of avant garde art. I read in Paul Griffiths' book about post-WWII avant garde music that the art form seems to be heading towards a concern with the "personal journey" of each audience member and less about the composer's presence within the music. In short, a personal style is discouraged in favor of a radical openness towards new ideas. Making aesthetically "good" or "quantifiable" art is no longer a concern of these new experimental artists since the personal journey inevitably requires challenges against one's taste or comfort zone. A careerist's nightmare perhaps, but that is forgivable in light of the invigorating possibilities of our spiritual and intellectual growth. Photographed in low light, excuse any loss of brilliance of my typically scanned drawings.
