round / theme
An instance of onomatopoeia, round is smooth as an "r" and curvy as the loud vowel "ow," rotund as a mound, grounded in its own honed sound. A luxuriousness of line, a smoothness of space, a continuous curvature: all these revolve on the rounded.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
