  • I'd say the meaning of any artwork changes if you show it to a different person, in a different place, or at a different time. So many factors affect our interpretation of art that it would be virtually impossible for two viewings of the same piece of art to yield identical responses. And ultimately, I think the meaning of any art is in the interpretations of it's audience, not the intention of the artist.
  • No not really. Artwork affects each person differently.
  • The original intended "meaning" of a work of art is resident only in the mind of the artist at the time he or she creates the work. A mark of great art is that it speaks to each admirer in his or her own language and leaves them with an improved perspective.
