Can art express the inexpressible? Is the language of art able to overcome deficits in our vocabulary?
Schadenfreude is a German word to express the emotion of feeling joy for another's misfortune. There isn't an English word to express this emotion.
Do you think artists experience an impotence in emotional descriptors in language that their visual communication attempts to fill? Do you think a poet's focus is to overcome this same deficit? And if that is true - are literary artists and visual artists approaching the same goal, or are they at opposite ends?
What do you think?
