3.0 out of 5 stars Not for an artist?, 7 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Remarks on Colour: Parallel Text (Paperback)
I'm glad to have read this book but on reflection feel a little disappointed. These remarks are not developed and resolved in the same depth and thoroughness as his Philosophical Investigations. The book will be of interest to anyone wishing to complete their reading of Wittgenstein's work. However, I would suggest that it contains relatively few insights that an artist, who has drawn or painted from direct observation, would find unfamiliar.
Unsurprisingly, the remarks concentrate on how visual experience can be named and the problems of translation into words. This is Wittgenstein's world. Perhaps an artist will know that we can sense visual experience and translate that experience in a richer fashion? The use of colour has considerable potential and, simply, Wittgenstein has not explored that potential it these remarks.
