I Explore the Ethereal, the Beautiful and the Spiritual stories of human creativity.
My motivation in writing here is to have a space to gather what I research about art. I encounter pieces that catch my eye, especially as I walk the halls of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. What I will focus on is art with technical mastery and uplifting messages and principles. In my view, Art needs to place the highest value on authenticity by accurately depicting things. I often find this kind of inspiration at the department of Hellenistic Art, Asian Art and European Paintings.
Visual Art, which is the area of my focus, has a leading role in society. It gives the pulse on what the current society is like, it's a mirror, it reflects the moral compass of the world. What is beautiful, upright and inspiring transpires through art. Art influences people in subtle and not so subtle ways. That is why I will focus on forms that value technical mastery first. My understanding of beauty might lean on ancient influences and hopefully you will appreciate this perspective. I take this opportunity to thank Serge Boÿer, my former sculpture and volume teacher from the School of Fine Arts I attended in Avignon, France. He was the first one to spark my interest in art and its deeper meaning by introducing his students to the Golden Ratio and its application in art and architecture.
In short, and despite my training in contemporary art, I will stay away from anything modern that started to emerge at the beginning of the 20th century.
“To say that a work of art is good, but incomprehensible to the majority of men, is the same as saying of some kind of food that it is very good but that most people can't eat it.” — Leo Tolstoy
A new way of exploring history of art with a focus on traditional works with more depth, with classic aesthetics but with deeper meaning. I believe that it takes true courage to look conformist in appearence but actually "go against the grain" in thought.
