"Painting makes absent people present and the dead seem alive," wrote Leon Battist Albert, the 15th century Italian humanist. "I paint to preserve the similarity of men after their death," wrote Albrecht Duer in 16th-century Germany. As long as we breathe mortals, we will be created. Unknown artists are constantly working on designing their specific themes in their homes, courtyards, workplaces and favorite colorful activities to alert the world to their arrival and their temporary stay on earth. The Parthenon was built to house a colossal sculpture of the patron goddess Athena. We are housed to fulfill the divine. Through countless unmistakable artistic works, man wants to create / express his individual resemblance to the indescribable sublime. ART represents through him the immortal part that says, "I am divine, that which is divine lives in and through me, making visible the ever-flowing, bubbling light that can not be destroyed, suppressed, or silenced . " Like gold we seem incessantly like the sun.
In various cultures and civilizations, gold has often been used in various artifacts. Gold can not be destroyed. By melting, the contaminants seep into the container, leaving only the purest essence. Could the artist, through the artistic process, possibly show in / through his creations an unmistakable departure, melting and shaping of the impurities found in themselves, leaving only the brightest virtues and incalculable beauties to look at? But is beauty only what pleases the eye? Can not the beauty equally present, endure and involve the ugly, morbid, disgusting and despised? Always in the embedded drive of ART rides the wave of greed / gluttony, no matter how cleverly disguised. However that may be, the main purpose of any artistic expression is to elevate humanity in spite of itself or its human weaknesses. Even the raiders who stole precious priceless ART have been transformed in the act of theft. ART moves and will not be obsessed with God / Goddess / Goddess. The final resting place of many priceless pieces has not yet been determined.
Many unknown factors flow into ART's contribution to humanity. ART takes over & # 39; the temperature and the environment in which it is manufactured and transported. The work itself becomes a polyglot of every aspect of the culture that preceded it. Masterpieces are the children of thousands of years of different heritage. Not only does it arise out of itself, but for hundreds of thousands of years, it is courted in the genes of the person who brings it to life. ART is the basis for us to react with a great exhibition of emotions. From fear to indignation, from pleasure to pleasure, we feel attracted or repelled by what we see. We can never fully imagine or assess how much effort and energy has gone into making ART. We can only observe the shell of the representation of something that is far more complicated than it first appears at first sight. What you see is just an indication of this "inviolable quality". which exists in the totality.
What are we actually watching? What about a particular work of art that inspires, forces, repels or disturbs us? We do not just look at the work, but behind the work in the God, which is reflected in ourselves. We see what we are. We can not do anything else. Our eyes are stained and conditioned by the complications and contaminations of our own unique experiences, events and relationships. ART is the conductor who either connects or disconnects, causing us to go beyond our current whereabouts, or continue to moan, complain, criticize, and complain about our present place. It does not matter if we like or dislike what we observe. If we really look further, deeper, farther, and longer, we will find what we are looking for: a part of ourselves and the divinity buried in waiting for expression.
Mortals are constantly searching for answers to the most confusing universal questions: Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going? These underlying questions relate to the past, present and future as well as to the nature of the human condition itself. By immersing ourselves in the earliest periods, combined with today's events (the chaotic / barbaric era), we can explore the mysterious Universe to better appreciate, relate, and absorb as it moves through us and into our ART.
We are forced to think about the question: does culture influence ART or is ART influenced by culture? Prehistoric ART is full of exaggerated, overt symbolism that reflects its similar interests in finding the answers to these ongoing nebulous questions. The Venus of Willendorf can adequately represent man's attempt to fulfill the vital premise in himself to dispel the fears associated with what might possibly have happened to him after his death. She cries as a foreign deity that man needs to confirm his inexorable urge to worship something greater that exists in him. No doubt, man's greatest aspiration is to grasp and illustrate the inner spiritual aspect of his nature. He intends to reveal through ART the inexplicably hidden Master of Divine Essence. The artists' creations are merely the outward manifestation of an inner realization. From cavemen to the most technologically advanced humans, the sole purpose is to see God face to face in some way. Studying, contemplating and meditating on the various ART works made available and created by them provides an option to expand the human universe. A hologram-like resonance can give you a personal revelation that makes you imagine an experience that is more than what it appears to be on the surface.
The hidden part of a work of art is the part that connects us to us. As we study and meditate on the various artworks of ART, we must begin with their design and realize that design is nothing more than a pure abstract meaning. It has nothing to do with the subject at hand. What you see is just an indication of what's behind it. This applies regardless of whether the object in the finished state is treated realistically or abstractly painted. The abstract structure of a work is its theme; The thing presented is his idea. Both reflect the immaterial expression. The creative study of ART involves self-analysis of the gastrointestinal tract. What you think about work is all that matters! Effective analysis involves the process of immersion in the artists & # 39; Intention and discovery of how he realized the form itself. Can you feel, see and hear him while working in constant doubt and self-denying remorse?
When you actively engage in rendering, applying, studying, and understanding the cosmic visualizations of ART, you get so much more than just looking: an erotic experience is added to the visual experience. Was not it Plato who said, "It is beauty I seek, not beautiful things"? An artist knows that creating beauty in itself, rather than trying to get it done (either in places or in things), makes one implode with indescribable potential. He might be tempted to do no more than make a duplication of the artistic inventory of the places and things he absorbs instead of creating something original, but if he chooses this path, he will not be different from the one who looking for something. # 39; Quick Fixes & # 39; to complex problems.
As Matisse has stated, "There is an inherent truth that must be separated from the outward appearance of the object to be portrayed, which is the only truth that matters." Accuracy is not truth. " The implicit need of man to know and understand the vile parts of himself through the divine nature that he inhabits motivates him to conquer again and again. If the meaning of God were implicitly accurate, he would stop his search.
"The great epoch of the spiritual, which has already begun or in embryonic form, has begun yesterday … and will create the ground on which a kind of monumental work of art must be realized," cried Wassily Kandinsky 1910 If we are the artist behind the artist we will never be able to function satisfactorily. The cavemen spoke to us; as well as the Mayas, Egyptians, Romans, Etruscans and many, many others. We have to pay attention to their artistic wisdom and capitalize on their fingers, pointing to the direction of what lies within them. With pitiful inability we try to unravel the meanings of ART of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Without the latent cosmic insight found in every ART, we miss the point of ART. An overview of the history of ancient, everyday and everyday ART impresses us indelibly with the fact that it is a continuous personal exploration of the soul. Each period has its own mirror image of GOD. Without the application of the inherent cosmic aspect immersed in it as a viable means of expression, anyone who relates to the atmosphere of the time in which it flourished loses ART's universal, engaging connection. The infinite search of man for the association, the appearance and the aura of God is contractually sought by and through the hands of the artist. The irreplaceable aspects of the origin of temperate divinity are immeasurably included in the person who seeks to destroy to create. The eternal immutable substance, known as LIFE, as the divine essence of truth contained in ART, can not be destroyed, but stands eternally like a banner blowing for those "who diligently seek, will .. . "(circumscribed) Find Isaiah.
