Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to? What does it say to you? Describe the experience. (Or, if art doesn’t speak to you, tell us why.)
Art does not ‘speak’ to me?
I’m an artist.
Art is my speech.
If you don’t mind an artist’s view on the subject, let me take a swooping dive and dip my quill…
The artist’s eye is the harmonious combination of all the senses, all seven that is. The five physical senses as well as Second Sight: insight; the eyes and ears of the soul. Soulshine – the heart of the soul.
Ha! Indeed, the heart of the matter.
I’m drawn to an artists’ work, when the artist speaks to me through the artwork. I smell the voice behind the barrier; taste the sound within the silence; hear death in life beat; feel the doubt in certainty; and see the creator behind the creation…
Through the artist’s eye; that’s probably why, once blind, but now I see… All praise to The Creator of creation!
Artists do not suffer blind myopic Darwinism. They have no cause to entertain the notion, artworks happen out of pure chance without a designer behind the scene. The thought of the Great Sphinx of Giza being the result of eons of chanced desert sandstorms, is simply – offensive. Not forgetting dear old Eiffel Tower – no, an artist wouldn’t dare stoop to the belief, that iron and steel were harvested and processed by chance from the earth, and then painstakingly erected to mathematic precision, by the infamous ‘chance god.’
Artists see the artist behind the artwork.
Is it recognition, or an art of the eye…?
It is simply, the art of using both eyes – the physical and the metaphysical.
That’s the art in the artist’s eye.
