Art work Description:
Actuismus is a basis-oriented art-theoretical summary ,manifested in the diverse currents of the respective cultural society in that the artist works in. Actuismus is concerned with the handwriting of the artist, with the origin in the art, changes of the surrounding field, in the development, transformation and interpretation of the work. The actuistic work develops within a set time limit. Beginning with compositions with strong contrasts, a relatively simple task to position ,and disposition the surrounding field, through the relationship of the contrasts to the None contrasts (polychrome pictures and sculptures) up to the invisible non form only by the viewer made visible. In the same way with the three dimensional work, where the space affiliation and proportions made by the artist make visible, arriving in the area that other area leaves open. Core topic is the handwriting and the conversion by the artist, and that itself develops into the end product. By pursuing the development the viewer becomes a part of the whole process. Actuismus can be seen as a form of ā€œminimal art". The largest Difference probably lies in conversion, not in the theoretical Background. Actuismus defines the action, reveals a part of the artistic process of creation . Each work of art holds a piece of Actuismus. Each story a work of art represents, is a part of the history of the artist that created it. Actuismus goes to the root of all artistic styles. Focusing on a compressed compilment of substantial factors. The personality, the temperament of the artist,the experience and the longing ,influence the work of art in such a way that it develops into what it has to be. Even in the reproduction of a piece of work, always carries the handwriting of the artist. Conversion is the topic. Minimalistic or monumental that is not of importance. The viewer selects the form, in which he can explain or recognize a piece of art work. Actuistic work creates the area in a self-chosen restricted space. Only the substantial elements attempt to avoid the put time limit. The more reduced the form of the execution is selected, the more clearly becomes the origin of all work. Recognition after immersing into an artistic work, wakes ā€œHomeland feelingsā€ in the viewer and brings the work closer,then easier to comprehend. The surface and the handwriting of the artist, are components in the game that is called art. The number of the possibilities the arrangement of three lines is inconceivablily large. If it comes to apparent repetitions, then only because the artist has his own rhythm which he follows unconsciously. A work of art is kind of signature - with each line - with each movement ,ending with a confession of authenticity. What makes the magical constitution of a composition? Is it our cultural roots that make it familiar, or is it what we have learned to understand?
