Enlarging humanity’s view
The limitations of our own eyes
Visionaries open up hidden doors, so we might see parts of the world, and parts of ourselves, that may otherwise remain unknown. Vision is the specialty of abstract artists, and over the past 10 years, few modern art abstract paintings have succeeded in enlarging humanity’s view.
Most of today’s contemporary abstract artists struggle both for the ways they see freedom in their modes of expression and for the ways they help viewers open their minds to new ways of seeing. However, abstraction continues to open new doors to us as we try to comprehend the endless complexities our evolving society presents us with.
By watching the works of the great abstract artists of today and tomorrow, the viewer can hopefully translate our contemporary anxieties and fears and help us see beyond the limitations of our own eyes.
When looking at an abstract painting do you ever think anyone could do that? If you’re wondering how a work or another can be considered a masterpiece, you’re not alone. However, it lies in your ability to connect to art. A work of art is not usually understood by everyone. Art is not for everyone or at least one has to make an effort to understand it.
Art also refers to all human endeavors, including the product of one creative urge, therefore, is the communication of an idea, be it visual, musical, communicative, etc.
Let’s assume the idea that the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos, like the pictures they paint (wall art and home decoration), the composed music or the written books.
There is something very beautiful about a canvas, there is nothing in the beginning. However, the paint changes its meaning and let’s not dismiss the artist hand that creates the story. Every canvas begins the same, but in the end, they are all unique and very different.
