INTENTISM

Intentionalism and the Arts

                                                          Intentist Art

Intentist artists are all interested in the role of intention in a work of art. 

Intentist art should not be confused with conceptual art. An Intentist artist, although concerned with the concept of intentionalism, is committed to the aesthetics of the final piece.

The primary difficulty in making a visual statement about intention lies in Cartesian Dualism. Intention, by definition is internal, the work in contrast, is the external realization. How can the internal intention been seen in the external work? 

At present there are three approaches adopted by various Intentist artists: Palimpsestic art and the Creative Trail, ironic art, and anarrative art. Please click on the hyper-link 'Intentist Arts' for definitions. Below is a selection of each.
