Decoration

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Design is knowing which ones to keep” Scott Adams

The above image is a decorative piece.

If you notice, there are three rounded structures with multiple small pieces of a thin plastic sheet of different shapes.

What is this art piece conveying to you?

I struggled a lot to make out without any success.

It’s OK…I’m not an artist.

“A common defect of modern art study is that too many students don’t know why they draw” Robert Henri

I picked a good one

“Who told you that one paints with colors? One makes use of colors, but one paints with emotions.” Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin

Can you tell whether the photo of this flower, painted by an artist or subjected to photoshopping?

I don’t know the difference as a layman.

But a professional painter may tell.

Any difference between a Drawing & a Painting?

“Draw what you see; Paint what you feel”  Francis Boag

Many times ordinary people fail to understand what exactly contemporary art conveys!

It is said contemporary art conveys emotion. I find it difficult to understand that emotion. Maybe I am not intelligent enough.

Thank you.

Mother Nature’s Art vs Man’s Art

Mother Nature is very soft, gentle, and at the same time very powerful.

Mother nature is an inspiration for many including, artists, architects, poets, and even scientists. We can never stop admiring Mother Nature’s capacity of design, color, and symmetry.

“There is no designer better than Mother Nature” Alexander Mcqueen

Nature's Art

“Nature is the art of God” Dante Alighieri

Modern Art

“This grandiose tragedy that we call modern art” Salvador Dali

However much humans try to replicate Mother Nature….still its an Imitation Jewelry

“Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little” Banksy 

According to Keith Haring “The best reason to paint is there is no reason to paint”

Nefelibata

What is Nefelibata?

Portuguese in origin, derived from “nefele” (cloud) and “batha” (a place to walk), it literally translates to “cloud walker”.

Noun –

  • daydreamer;
  • a person lost in imagination;
  • an unorthodox person who doesn’t abide by the rules of society

Let us talk about Abstract Art.

For some, it’s an unorthodox style of art where the viewer can make out nothing, despite spending hours in front of the well-framed art, elegantly decorated on the wall.

“Art should look like art, trees and flowers and people, not weird shapes and splotches of color all smeared together.”
 Jennifer Estep

NEFELIBATA

“Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable one” Banksy

At first glance, I can make out colors & brush strokes and the art appears colorful and I am confident that, I can come out with some message as I continue to imagine the possibilities. A kind of challenge to my brain.

Nefelibata

“A Picture is worth a thousand words-particularly if you can’t read “. Harry Hershfield

While professional artists give us a different explanation.

“Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot see physically with his eyes…Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an exploration into unknown areas.”
Arshile Gorky

I agree with the thoughts of the artist, and one must think about what exactly the artist is trying to convey. It gives immense pleasure if you can derive your meaning and the artist is truly delighted.

I feel the viewer should come out with their thoughts instead of pondering. It is challenging to conclude as to what is in the mind of the artist.

If you still can’t understand, you can always check with the Artist and get enriched regarding the artist’s thought process.

Probably interpretation of the art by you depends on how intelligent you are!

What are your thoughts my friend ?

Contemporary Art-What you understand after seeing,if you are not an artist ?

All of us can’t be artists

As a layman,I always wonder is there any subtle message in the contemporary art.

At first glance I am able to make out colors & brush strokes and the art appears colorful and I am confidant that, I can come out with some message as I continue to imagine the possibilities.A kind of challenge to my brain.

Are art & design different or same ? My small brain not able to decipher.

I understand that the contemporary art resonates with the soul of the artist and has much deeper meaning.

I agree with the thoughts of the artist, and one must think about what exactly the artist is trying to convey.It gives immense pleasure if you can derive your own meaning and the artist is truly delighted.

Is it a good idea if the viewer is not sure of what the art conveys ?

I feel the viewer should come out with their own thoughts instead of pondering.

If you still can’t understand ,you can always check with the Artist and get enriched regarding the artist’s thought process.

Probably interpretation of the art by you depends on how intelligent you are !

Please share your thoughts on Modern art & Contemporary art and any methods to interpret the meaning.

Some lighter moment-

Dave walks into an Art Gallery

Dave: I suppose this horrible looking thing is what you call modern art ?

Art Dealer: I beg your pardon sir,that is a mirror.
