My Art Story
The dictionary defines art as “the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power”, expressing artwork/ fine art. It is also defined as “the various branches of creative activity, such as painting, music, literature, and dance”, describing more of the visual arts. I am Art. Everyone says the same thing over and over again about art. “Art is all around us,” I am Art. Everyone says the same thing over and over again about art. “Art is all around us,” “Art is everywhere.” Truthfully, it is. Art is perception and conception. Any where there is an eye, there is art. Any where there is a world to be perceived, there is art for a perceiver.
Art for pulls me and evokes emotion. Art is poetry. I find art in poetic words, poetic intertwining of colors, poetic seduction of shapes on a canvas. Art is pure. It is usually imitation or purely influenced by life. Art can elicit feelings of many groupings. You can feel feelings of euphoria, love, appreciation, empathy, surprise, or even negative emotions like sadness, surprise, pain, confusion, or even self consciousness.
Artists dissolve the expectations that their audience may have. They break bounds that sometimes we do not know are optional, and can be broken.
Art for me is release and recycling of the world around us. It is a means to hold onto history, a lot like music. Once it is created in particular space in time, it will remain of that space and time forever. That is the beauty of art.
