What fine art is.

By: Dennen Terrell


From 17th century, the term "fine art" means art forms, developed for the sake of aesthetics. In some learning institutions and in museums this type of art is associated exclusively with visual art forms.
In contemporary world we can find a lot of displays of art. It is furniture in our house, it is our house itself, it is what we wear. We can include all these things to art. Someone decorated them to make them more beautiful. This applied art plays minor role. Its aim is just to decorate a thing, which people use in their ordinary lives. The role and the rank of fine art are different.
This type of art includes architecture, painting, sculpture, collage, decollage, assemblage, photography, installation, calligraphy, music, dance, theatre, cinema, conceptual art and printmaking. Among these types of fine art, only architecture brings practical use. Creators must think not only about how beautiful their house will be. They must also think about its safety for people, who will live in it.
By the way, all works of fine arts have some kind of practical use. They are created for the sake of our need for beauty. The final result of this art is a melody, or a book, or a dramatical piece, or a statue. In the contemporary art we can find the results of interesting experiments. All traditional methods in all types of art have something in common. This common feature is an image, which comes alive with the help of art. Artists do it with the help of words, sounds, stone, building materials, lines and colors. Every image includes rhythm, rate, harmony.
Rhythm appears from the measured sound repetition. Rate is the personification of an artist's idea in comparable parts. Harmony is a natural equivalent of the parts of the image. Of course, all of these are just basic terms and definitions.
