A Visual Language

Fallen Tree

This is when we start to share a common verbal language with other disciplines.  When composing music, dance, poetry, painting, writing prose, making sculpture, performance etc. we talk about: light and shade; colour accents; form and function; near and far, hard and soft, harmony and discord, rhythm, intensity, transparency and opacity, open and closed spaces etc. etc., which generally applies to any one of these creative activities.  Painting – as a visual language – is paint applied to a 2-D surface – usually – whereas dance, for instance, is carried out in a 3-D arena where all aspects of movement of the human form is the medium.
