The one thing I love about art is that is very subjective. what one piece of art means to one person can certainly mean something very different for someone else.
To the Artist, the artist knows the mood, emotion and story behind each piece of art. As an artist when I create something, I pull from everywhere, past experiences, social issues, life in general. It can be very personal or it can be a message to the outside of that artist’s world.
I have been known to take the emotions or experiences from someone else and create a piece of art reflecting that all the while pulling from my own life experiences to poetry, a photo, a drawing or a painting. Take for example this piece, I have titled, “Shattered Silence”
Upon looking at this image, what do you see?
This is how I describe this piece of art and I am going to share with you what others have said about this piece.
“This piece has to do with those moments when a person may be filled with emotion but has refrained from expressing their true emotions. I don’t believe it is healthy to keep things in and I truly believe when a person does that, there comes a time when that person must speak out but by that time, it is much more than speaking, rather it is screaming so loud it could shatter glass. That is the concept for shattered silence. This is an acrylic on paper.”
Here is what someone else said about this piece. I really liked what she had to say.
“Your wisdom is profound, i love your picture, the broken shards of emotional energy, not knowing how to be released, but she is finding a way…it is coming through. Her heart is ready to release, perhaps forgive…and to air it all..to release it all..so healing can begin
This is amazing and so riveting, just fabulous, you can feel her exposing the feelings..the emotions…just fabulous…this is a very healing painting, it is full of all emotions…and so good for the soul. I can relate to your painting, as I imagine many of us can who live in this world.
My life came to this a few years back..and what a difference now…this is like the dark night of the soul if you will…coming through the last part of the journey to me.
It is wonderful to release all the broken shards of life…emotions..and rebirth into something new, happy, and the wisdom that has been experienced and learned from each shard, gives you an understanding that is deeper than the ocean, and ripples through each fiber of your being.
Well done…your amazing!~ A billion stars for you!!! You express through your art, the heart and all that it contains….you have a beautiful gift, and I am so grateful you are in PIL(PaintingsIlove.com)…so we can all see and feel your beautiful and heart-felt paintings.
You are sharing you wisdom through your prose and painting, and you are so wise…..Thank you for sharing your gifts with me and all of PIL! Now put on a smile…hee hee…i know you already have!
When someone can someone can look at a piece of art and see so much in that particular piece, that tells me I did something right. I tapped into something deep and meaningful even if to that one person. Although I have received many affirming comments about this piece, this was my favorite.
I was very touched by that and that is why I do this. This is why I love art.
