elegant / theme
Elegant is never in a rush, never ruffled. Movement through space and time is graceful without being sugary, careful without being cautious, precise without being mathematical. Control is -- and seems -- effortless. The lines and curves could not possibly be improved upon. Poise, balance, and equanimity are intrinsic to elegance; it neither flaunts nor hides. Color and ornament are used sparingly and purposefully. Elegance is not carried away by frivolity, nor by profundity.
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.
