My way of painting (1)

The following table summarizes my personal approach towards painting.
I do not give this as a ready method for all to use but I hope that its content will help me and also the reader to clarify his our understanding of what will follow.



The subject of art >>>>

The form of painting >>>>

Art in society

The artist is part of his society and the artist's role is to create sense out of reality for his society. (how our future worldview is shaping in the present)

The first stage of creation:

Automaticism = the expression of one's feelings.

Everyone is enriching his society through his actions.

The artist makes sense out of reality from his own level of understanding.

The second stage of creation: making sense out of what has resulted from the automatic expression of feelings = the harmonization of feelings with knowledge.

The substance of artists' creations belongs to the commons. (society at large) and should thus be absolutely free of usage by all individuals.

Gaining general knowledge is central in the artist's life. The better his knowledge = the deeper the subjects of his works.

The third stage of creation: the harmonization of colors and lines = the embellishment of the work of art.

The materiality of the work of art created by an artist is the artit's personal ownership. This is what feeds the artist.



What will follow in the next days will be more personal than my past posts. It will be about my own way of painting.

In one or two posts, I'll first introduce you to the theories behind my ways and then in each of my new posts I'll introduce you one of my last acrylics with photo and text. In total I plan to introduce 30 works.
