9 - Artistic order

Art is a more-or-less orderly representation of experience - showing the order in experience or imposing order on experience.

Some art is an expression of intellectual order, some art is an expression of emotional, psychological, and religious order. (Some art comes from the head, some from the gut and crotch.)

The order of some artists seems external and obvious …
  • Normal Rockwell
  • Jackie Collins
  • The Monkees
The order of other artists seems internal and barely there…
  • Jackson Pollack
  • William Faulkner
  • Thelonius Monk
