It is said that simple talk about love is impossible, for talking already means loving. The very same thing can be said about art. You cannot talk and discuss art, without having at least a spark of this artistic point of view. In this article, we will cover on how to properly introduce art to your home, without falling into pits of looking ridiculous.
“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.”
We can freely agree with this statement of one of the greatest artists in modern time. Art is not simply decorating your house with pretty pictures and furniture. It means reflecting your inner sense on and in space around you. Is there any better way to ease up, than being surrounded with things and scenes which make you fulfilled? With a nice glass of wine, this makes this half an hour irreplaceable and priceless. Thus, this would be your first and most important goal. Find that which fulfills you, and introduce it to your home.
“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.”
We already made it clear, art is a story. Telling something you cannot describe nor express any other way than this. Someone will say that this painting you just hanged in your living room is “nice”. And that is their point of view. Nice. To you, seeing what is on it means a lot more than words. Open space may symbolize your yearn for freedom, or that deep sorrow that bothers you, represented in the image of a restless sea. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it is said, but we may say that it is in his soul. So, second rule would be to find something you see with your soul, rather than eyes.
“Art is not a handicraft, it is the transmission of feeling the artist has experienced.”
In order to increase and bolster that feeling of art, you can undertake decorating your space with your own items and pieces of art. Many will think that they lack talent for doing this, but the art is not just painting. Spare some time, and go wild. Do whatever makes you happy. Whether that be sculpting, decoupage, knitting or making collage works, it needs only to reflect your thoughts and attitudes. This way you will be more satisfied with your space. And in case that you are shy, and do not want to expose yourself, bedroom or a working room might become your exposure space. Third rule would order you to try yourself in art, for what comes out of it, might surprise you.
So, we can summarize all of those things, and say that art comes down to several things. Love, feeling and soul. All of those, however cannot be universal for all, and in order to represent it better, we are giving you a clip from Marvel’s TV show Daredevil, so you can see what is the point of art.
