Expression and deconstruction. On the possibility of applying the theory by Harold Bloom to the interpretation of artwork
The problem indicated in the title of the article belongs to a sort of aesthetic issues that demand careful analysis and consideration in the context of possible settlement in philosophical perspective. His ideas are connected with the fact that the current expression in European art is a response both to the preceding artistic achievements and, if not primarily, and to the social situation in which he was born (the situation was the subject of philosophical and humanistic writing on the period). A similar situation is connected with the "new expression" accompanied by rapidly growing postmodern philosophy. The course of considerations undertaken is intended to demonstrate the usefulness of these elementsin Harold Bloom’s deconstructive literary analysis that seem to be related as much to the creation and analysis of contemporary expressionist painting considered as cultural text.
An anticipated result of the research will show that the work of art, regardless of artistic discipline in which it is embedded, does not look for a single discourse, but many – non-linear but intersecting and sometimes antagonistic discourses, as evident in creative ratio of the artist's work, which by nature is embedded in a historical context.
