Yesterday, I visited an art exhibition hosted by Bistyek. Some of his paintings at the exhibit were titled but others were untitled.

When asked why, he said that if he names a piece hurt” or sadness” then this suggests to the viewer what emotions to feel. He said that he doesn’t want to constrain the viewers interpretation of the piece. The painting should illicit the emotions and viewers are free to interpret it however they like.

This reminds me of a piece I wrote previously about how defining means to limit.
