In art we can see the dynamic interaction of different principles: order and fantasy, dark and light, cool and warm colours, convex and concave surfaces.
The artist working out of Anthroposophy strives to understand these various polarities and how they are related to inner qualities. From a recognition of these relationships, spiritual realities can be revealed.
