Art and ‘artistic’ – El arte y lo ‘artístico’ (Jean Klein)


 
Q. Is the work of Gaugin or Van Gogh art or artistic?
 
JK. Really speaking it is still artistic. In the artistic work, one emphasises the expression, the relation between color and form. In art, the inner feeling is emphasised. This inner feeling directly stimulates an inner feeling in the onlooker.
 
Q. And this inner feeling has no representation in emotion, ideas, sensations, and so on.
 
JK No, it is pure feeling without object which is a spiritual experience.  (Cont. tomorrow)

P. ¿Es la obra de Gaugin o de Van Gogh arte o es ‘artística’?
 
JK. Realmente no es más que ‘artística’. En la obra artística lo que se enfatiza es la expresión, la relación entre el color y la forma. En el arte es el sentimiento ("interior", "inner feeling") lo que se enfatiza. Este sentimiento estimula directamente un sentimiento en el observador.
 
P. Y este sentimiento no tiene representación en las emociones, ideas, sensaciones, etc.
 
JK. No, es puro sentimiento sin objeto, que es una experiencia espiritual.   (Cont. mañana)
