Artists Transmit Their Feelings

Friday, June 20th, 2008

Life takes you through many ups and downs, and all of us learn from the lows and enjoy the highs, but most of us don’t know how to express these emotions. But artists have a knack for being able to express their emotions through their paintings. You can tell when an artist has suffered in his life, when he experiences sheer joy, even what things he likes and dislikes. Some artists even transpose their very political or religious views in their art. You can tell, because the work becomes passionate, and the subjects, composition and poses are personal.

When artists are parents, their work becomes even more passionate, especially for those artists that either work in figure drawing, portrait work, or anything that has to do with emotions, as you can tell from the above portrait.

In this case the artist (Don Gray) has created a portrait of his adult son at work. In the painting he expresses the love, the regret of having him grown, his passion and his own. In each brush stroke you can visualize his reminiscing about years gone by, and yet loving the now, adult relationship he has with his son.

He also expresses his dedication, concentration, and love for his work through this painting, while at the same time you see a regret for the child that has grown into the man.

Collecting Art

Monday, June 16th, 2008

Today Art collecting has become very popular, but do people know what they are doing when they are collecting art? Most people have no idea how to start collecting art, and usually start by buying something someone recommended, whether they like it or not. Some art critics and artists have started teaching others the Art of collecting. The objective of these classes is to really have people understand what art is, but to “THEM” and not what art they should collect because society tells them to collect that particular style, Artist, or type of art.

As many critics and artists will tell you, the most frequent question they get is “How to become a collector?” the truth is, that you can’t just start buying paintings from famous painters and consider yourself a collector. People begin collecting art for many different reasons, and some do it without even realizing that they are collecting, but the first thing you should do is just “Relax” stand back, and let yourself observe art, when you have observed it enough you will understand, “how to become a collector?” No one expresses this idea better than Edward Goldman who makes his way among the art and artists.
