I like to think that Art and Science are essential to each other. It takes an active imagination to develop a new theory in science, along with technical ability to test said theory, and it takes systematic experimentation to develop new tools for art (find the right pigment of paint, discover linear perspective, etc.) along with an intuitive knowledge of what will look good and what will not. In human neurology there are two separate systems for processing information: Reason is methodical, conscious, and generally more reliable, Intuition is fast, occasionally unreliable, and the result of largely unconscious processes. Reason embodies a scientific approach, Intuition an artistic one, but you need both Intuition and Reason to do just about anything in either the Arts or Sciences well. Any thoughts? (I thought I’d try actually posting about art on this thread. We’ll see what happens).
I love and totally agree with that.
And it blows me away how awesome and beautiful God’s artistry is to have woven a world this intricate and calculated, yet delicate and inspiring.
I might get to take a class on chemistry in art in the next few years, and I’m HYPED.
