Aesthetics – Phils day off

For my Phil’s day off assignment for Aesthetics i decided to stop by the Vancouver art gallery while i was Downtown.

I had never been before so it was a unique experience. I thought that going to the art gallery was perfect for this unit since its all about the principles of beauty and artistic taste.

I was with my Mom and many of the pieces i would like but she wouldn’t and vice versa. This made me realize that aesthetics is probably the unit that I understand the most because it makes so much sense to me that everyone has different opinions on what beauty is and has different artistic taste.

I don’t believe that beauty can actually be defined. The term “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” is so true. I learnt that each unique person will see things in his or her own way.
