Envision the image

Stairway to heavenBefore the artist sets out to actually create the image on canvas, it is necessary to create a mental framework or picture of the subject. So let’s say the subject is a staircase. In the eyes of an artist the staircase could represent the labyrinth of thoughts, which keep winding through the mind in and out. Now how does he represent this concept through imagery? Artists use various props and ideas to create the central essence and theme of the picture. So maybe the staircase could be winding with no definite end in sight, or could be a staircase in the shape of infinity – which is symbolic of the never-ending thought process of the mind. Whatever the concept, the art needs to depict it through definite frameworks and imagery – which is called envision.
