MEDIUM OF THE ART/TECHNIQUE OF THE ARTIST
It is clear when you are standing in front of great art, why it holds such much significance in mankind's history. Seeing an immaculate Roman sculpture or a beautifully handcrafted Aborigine headdress transcends appearance, and opens a door into another culture's world. Seeing art in person also brings the history to life, changing you into more than an observer.
I have always been fascinated by seeing the sharp contrast of the grand wavy brushstrokes on delicately crafted paintings. It shows the artists ability to paint with a river like flow, rather than a meticulous precision. Making their end result all the more magnificent. Opening a connection into the mind of the painters true expression. In the painting above the striking pose of the people poised in front of a grand yet distant town really sparked a connection in me. The indifferent people in the forefront of a dreamlike landscape, gave a vibe of warm indifference, only complimented by the effortless brushstrokes of the painter. It reminded me of our societies ability to be numb to so much of the worlds beauty in order to protect ourselves, more so our social identities.
