Aesthetics

Art

It originates with an idea, formed from our collective experiences. Ideas come from our mind: consciously trying to achieve while subconsciously putting the pieces together. Ideas are subjective. Once you've got an idea, technical skill is required to execute the plan, this part is objective.

The three are irrespective; you could have a wacky idea, and that’s artful – but it may not have taste – so it’s art, but not good art. Art doesn’t have to be utilitarian; art for art's sake applies to indulgence. Balance between the two is required. Art is functional; otherwise, life would be dull.

Beauty

You must admire and respect the creation and the creator. Evaluating works; giving praise / criticism is a marker for judging beauty.

Taste

The awareness of high culture based on historical and original concepts. It requires emotion to feel; and intellect to appreciate the craftmanship. It must adhere to universal style.
