As a quote from a clergyman from America named Henry Ward Beecher, there will always be a part of yourself, if not all, in everything that you create.
As quoted from the famous Spanish artist, Pablo Picasso. Anything could stimulate an artist’s mind. And by anything, it means absolutely anything. From living to non-living things, from something humble as an ant or the towering skyscrapers. You name it. A simple thought could turn into stunning masterpieces.
This quote by Thomas Merton can not be any truer. For artists, before they could find meaning in their artwork, they first lose themselves in the process, they lose grounds of the reality to create a world of their own where they discover more about themselves.
And for observers, this is also true. How many times have you looked at an artwork and find yourself confused? And if you stare long enough, you begin to interpret its meaning that is uniquely your own.
From the French artist, Edgar Degas comes the famous quote “Art is not what you see but what you make others see.”
People perceive art in many different ways but regardless of what it means for one person, the fact that someone has opened his/her eyes and saw something in it has art achieved its purpose.
I am seeking. I am striving. I am in it with all my heart for Art
