I see esthetic autonomy as a misnomer. How does one have an esthetic? Not as an untouched entity certainly.All esthetic awareness is engendered by how our thoughts are juxtaposed with one another. Not just one but thousands of other ideas/sensabilities. We exist in conjunction with the Myriad. Style is influenced by history,weather,color,geography,materials,and experience,among other things.Consequently,there is no esthetic produced with true autonomy. We are each a part of the whole.Of course,if the definition of autonomy is to be distinct, then I believe this is an achievable esthetic.
