Mimesis

Imitation, another version, representation

Sublime

Ideas of beauty, unrepresentable, a sensation of feeling overwhelmed, incomparable

A solitary/ subjecive experience.  Everyone is different so will have strong emotional responses toward different work.

Expression

 

Exploring your own ideas and feelings, projecting your ideas out to the world, provoking thought in others.  Creating work that refelects your ideas and thoughts actively.

“Get to the heart of what is before you and continue to express yourself as logically as possible” – Paul Cezanne

“The expression of beauty is in direct ratio to the power of conception the artist has acquired” – Gustave Courbet

Significant Form

“Only one answer seems possible — significant form. In each, lines and colours combined in a particular way, certain forms and relations of forms, stir our aesthetic emotions. These relations and combinations of lines and colours, these aesthetically moving forms, I call ‘Significant Form’; and ‘Significant Form’ is the one quality common to all works of visual art” – – – Clive Bell

“The starting-point for all systems of aesthetics must be the personal experience of a peculiar emotion”

I think there is a definate link between the sublime and significant form

Both are about subjective feelings towards a piece of art and the overwhelming rush of emotion brought on by that artwork.
