Lyco art identifies the meaning of art with its life-serving purpose
Concerning itself with cultural transformation and the human condition, Lyco art seeks to expand the boundaries of aesthetics.
Paul Hartal is a Canadian painter and poet, born in Szeged, Hungary. He has created the term “Lyrical Conceptualism” to characterise his style in both painting and poetry, and has created a manifesto to describe his thesis.
Lyco Art creates a conscious bridge between the impulsive, intuitional, and planned elements of the creative process, thereby moving along the whole continuum of formative energies. This creative process represents the interaction of emotion and intellect, wherein the passion of logic and the logic of passion are inexorably interwoven through the voyage of aesthetic consciousness.
In applying theory to practice in design and painting, Lycoism finds its expression in coded colours and forms. Accordingly, warm hues and amorphous shapes might correspond to emotion and the irrational, while cold colours and geometric forms might express the rational and the logical.
In addition, since science and technology impact so much of modern lifestyle during the electronic age, Lycoism views the relationship of art, science, and technology as a pivotal concern. Lycoism refuses to polarize science and art; instead, it seeks to unify aesthetics and ethics in works which involve the use of science and technology by the artist in the creation of beauty.
