expansive / theme
Expansive extends both in space and in emotion: it is a feeling of spaciousness. There is room enough and more to breathe, to walk for hours, to send out an eyebeam that travels like light and still does not reach the horizon. Expansive throws out its arms and encircles without closing the circle. It fills without crowding. It is a vastness that does not frighten or diminish, but rather expands, extends, internally opens the human, makes
him a phenomenon of nature.
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.
